Original story --

A Bothell woman found dead in her home Tuesday was killed by homicidal violence, police said Wednesday.

Bothell police called the death suspicious on Tuesday, when the woman, so far not identified, was found inside her home in the 200 block of 240th Street Southwest. That's just southeast of the Canyon Park area in south Snohomish County.

Police have not released any information on suspects. "We have some leads, but I have no information about suspects at this time," said Bothell Police Department Sgt. Cedric Collins.

KIRO 7 News reported that neighbors said the woman had lived in the home with her husband and two children, but had recently been divorced. KIRO also reported that neighbors said police had told them the children were safe. See the KIRO story by clicking here.

Collins said the children are safe. "She was the only victim. No one else was harmed."

Police went to the woman’s house at about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday when her employer called to say she had not shown up for work.
