After it was noticed that she had not been seen for some time the police were informed and when they went to her house they found her dead on her dead with an undergarment tied tightly around her neck.

The police also found a chisel on the bed and a slight wound on her left cheekbone.

It was noted that there was no sign of any struggle and that both the front and back doors had been fastened.

The pathologist that examined her stated that she had been strangled, but that her death could have been either suicide or homicide.
