The Jessamine County Coroner has identified the woman found deceased in her home Tuesday afternoon.
Police say that there no signs of forced entry but 62-year-old Elizabeth Morgan was not found in her bed. Police say a family member found her body after going inside the home.
Neighbors tell LEX 18 that the woman was a kind grandmother who moved to the home about six months ago.
.Susan Parker says she never knew her neighbor’s name, but always waved “hi” when the grandmother was outside playing with her dogs. But today was different.
“When I drove up, I saw ambulances. I believe there were two ambulances, cop cars, the coroner, and I was just devastated,” said Parker. “I just saw her like I said, Saturday, Sunday, playing football with her grandkids. and she seemed like everything was okay. She loved her kids, she loved her dogs,” said Parker.
Investigators removed items from the scene as evidence, including this red bag, and what Parker says looked like a pillow. Police say they don’t suspect foul play in the woman’s death, but did explain why it was being called suspicious.
“Just looking at the entire scene. There wasn’t any forced entry, any signs of injury. Yet, she wasn’t in bed, and it wasn’t just a typical in-the-middle-of-the-day thing. She seemed to be a healthy individual,” said Officer Kevin Grimes with the Nicholasville Police Department.
That uncertainty is why neighbors are concerned. One neighbor told us the area feels unsafe, and there have been several break-ins at homes.
