ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. (WTVF) — Authorities are investigating the suspicious death of an elderly woman who was found dead inside her Ashland City home on Sunday morning.

On Monday, investigators from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spent their second day in a row removing evidence from the elderly woman's home on Valley View Drive. But officials have not released any kind of information about her apparent killer.

The woman's name has not been released but neighbors who live nearby remain on edge about the crime.

"We just want to know why. This is just a simple community, simple area and we’re just working people," said Brian Carroll who lives down the street from the home where the woman lived.
