According to police, both Saal and Byington worked at a marketing company called Engine, in Princeton, for the past three years. Saal was an accountant and Byington was involved in market research.
Co-workers called the police around 6 p.m. on June 10 when Byington left for lunch and never came back to work.
When officers arrived at her home, they found her dead body; an autopsy confirmed that her death was a homicide. Neighbors reportedly told police that they heard “faint screams” coming from her apartment at around 1 p.m. on the day she was killed, but said they didn’t call the cops. They told police that Byington was very quiet and was rarely seen around her apartment complex except when going to work.
