TAYLORSVILLE — Police say a woman found dead in her Taylorsville home died of suffocation and they are calling her death a homicide.
The body of Margaret Steffey, 59, was found Wednesday morning inside her house at 3973 W. Blue Meadow Drive (5850 South). There were no signs of forced entry or a break-in, according to the Unified police.
Officers were originally called to do a welfare check on Steffey, whom family members hadn't heard from since Saturday.
Detectives were asking Thursday for the public's help in finding anyone who may have seen something suspicious in the area since Saturday or knows of anyone "that the homeowner had contact with." They are asked to call police at 385-468-9816.
