A 64-year-old woman found dead in her McSherrystown area home Tuesday morning is the victim of a homicide, according to state police.
Christiana Leonard was found on the first floor of her home in the 700 block of South 3rd Street in Conewago Township, police said. The discovery was made by a family member who went to check on Leonard when she failed to show up for work.
Authorities have released no information regarding how Leonard was killed. An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday morning.
Investigators were searching for a car that was missing from the home, a burgundy 1992 Buick Regal, but a trooper told abc27 News that the vehicle has since been recovered.
