Detectives Investigating Thursday Night Homicide

Detectives are investigating after a woman was found murdered at an illegal marijuana grow operation late Thursday evening.

Officers were dispatched to a home in the 7100 block of 44 Avenue South just after 11 pm Thursday for a report of a woman with a possible gunshot wound.

Seattle Fire Department Medics arrived with officers and immediately began CPR but the woman died at the scene. Detectives will now work with the Medical Examiners office to determine the actual cause of death.

Homicide detectives checked the residence and found an illegal marijuana grow operation inside the home. Investigators also found evidence of a possible burglary attempt at the house. Homicide Detectives are now working with the Narcotics Unit and Crime Scene Investigators to develop a possible suspect description.

This remains an active and ongoing investigation and anyone with information is asked to call the Homicide tip-line at (206)233-5000.
