TAYLORSVILLE, Utah (AP) - Police are now calling the suspicious death of a Taylorsville woman a homicide after an autopsy indicated she was suffocated.

Unified Police said in a statement Thursday afternoon that the body was discovered a day earlier when officials were called to check on a 59-year-old woman who lives alone.

Officials say an autopsy indicates the woman was suffocated but it’s not clear how.

Police are not releasing her identity until family members are notified.

Authorities say they don’t have any suspect yet and are asking members of the public to share any information they might have.

Investigators found no sign of a force entry.

Neighbors tell KUTV the woman who lived there was a friendly, retired teacher.
