Officers responding to a 911 call for suspicious circumstances on Monday found the woman dead inside a home just off Pacific Highway in Edmonds.

Investigators say the woman’s roommate cooperated with the investigation Monday. But on Wednesday the Snohomish County Medical Examiner told police there’s evidence the woman may have been murdered.
