VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Police in Vancouver, Washington, say they’re investigating the death of a 66-year-old woman as a homicide.

The Columbian reports (https://is.gd/T7Pxff ) that police who were asked to do a welfare check Saturday on Sharon Allison found her dead inside her apartment at the Columbia House, a Vancouver Housing Authority building for low-income senior citizens.

Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp did not say Monday how Allison died, saying investigators were waiting for information from the Clark County medical examiner’s office. No arrests have been made.

Allison’s brother, Paul Allison of Oklahoma, says his sister suffered a double brain aneurysm 20 years ago, which left her slower mentally and paralyzed on one side of her body. She used a walker.

Mark Wilton, an assistant minister at the church Allison attended, says she had told the congregation that some unsettling things were happening at Columbia House.
