Homicide investigation after woman found dead inside DC home

- A homicide investigation is underway after a woman who was reported missing was found dead inside of a home in Northeast D.C. on Tuesday.

The victim was discovered at around 6 p.m. on 14th Street in a neighborhood adjacent to a gas station and several restaurants. FOX 5 has learned that the victim may have been bound.

Investigators say the victim was reported missing before her body was discovered. Sources tell FOX 5 she was not one of the teenagers reported missing over the past few weeks.

Elizabeth Risley, who lives across the street from the home where the body was found, said she heard a young couple had rented the basement at the home. “I don't ever remember anything going on there,” she said. “Just quiet. Neighbors have said things that does not sound like anyone really knew them very well.”

The woman has not been identified at this time. Police have not released suspect or motive information.
