UPPER DARBY, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a woman who was found dead in her suburban Philadelphia apartment may have been beaten and strangled.

Police say 36-year-old Markia Benson didn’t show up to work Wednesday at a Chester packaging company and when the apartment’s management officials opened the unit to check up on her, friends and co-workers found her nude and lying in her bathtub.

Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says there were no signs of forced entry and investigators believe she knew the person.
