Death[edit]

On July 21, 1964, Sherman was found dead in her apartment on St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans.[1] The body had stab wounds and burns from a fire.[1] The police report classified the death as a murder. An autopsy was performed by Monroe S. Samuels, M.D., on July 21, 1964. The autopsy report classified Sherman's death as a homicide.[2] Dr. Samuels determined that Sherman died of a stab wound in her heart. Most of the right side of her upper torso, including her right arm had been incinerated.[3] Sherman's murder remains unsolved.[4]
