Kent Police are investigating the suspicious death of a woman found inside her residence at the Mar A Villa Mobile Home Park, 23810 30th Ave. S., on the West Hill.

Officers were dispatched at about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 3 for a death investigation, according to police. A family member called from the home. Concerns were raised when relatives were unable to reach the woman during the morning hours, a circumstance described by family members as highly unusual for the woman.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause and manner of death. Police did not release an age for the woman.

Detectives continue to work with family and friends of the woman in an effort to identify a suspect and motive for the death.
