With contact unable to be made with her, Police responded to her Country Place home and upon entry discovered her body. A preliminary investigation showed the woman had been murdered.

“At this point w’ere treating the death as suspicious, until the Medical Examiner advises us the manner and cause of death,” the spokesman said.

Police are asking for the public’s help in locating the woman’s car, which was taken from her home.
