Police are investigating details surrounding the death of an elderly woman found inside her home near midtown Miami.
Shortly after 4 p.m. Friday, Miami Police officers went to the home of Carmen Diaz, 78, whose adult son decided to visit her after not hearing from her in a few days, according to a news release. When he arrived, he found Diaz dead inside her home of 50 years at 120 NW 34 St.
Miami Police spokeswoman Kenia Reyes said although the death appeared “somewhat suspicious,” the department isn’t releasing details until the county medical examiner determines the cause of death.
WSVN-Channel 7 reported that the adult son found Diaz’s house ransacked and her body wrapped in a blanket in her bathroom.
Police confirmed the house was in disarray, but wouldn’t say if there had been a burglary.
The Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner is currently investigating the scene.
