Police are investigating the death of a woman in her home in the 900 block of Chestnut Street as a homicide. The potential victim was discovered dead in her residence at 4:25 a.m. Oct. 30 after the police received a call requesting someone check on the woman.
The Medical Examiner's office is not releasing any details about the woman; her method of death is unknown at this time.
If the woman was murdered, she would be the 38th homicide victim of the year -- and first since Amy Mustain was raped and allegedly murdered in the Mission District's Krishna Motel all the way back in September.
