A murder investigation has been launched after the body of a woman was found by police in a bathtub in a Davie home.
Davie divers looked for clues behind the spacious home of 59-year old Jill Halliburton Su who was found murdered there Monday afternoon. Police did not say what they were looking for.
Police were called to the home in the upscale community of WestRidge, 10327 SW 22nd Pl. The call first came in as a reported suicide but police later called it a “suspicious death.”
On Tuesday they confirmed the woman’s death was the subject of a homicide investigation.
“They found she was murdered in the residence and she was found by a family member,” said Sgt. Ed Smith of the Davie Police Department.
Police have yet to release the manner she died or a possible motive.
She is related to the Halliburton oil family and was married to renowned University of Florida entomologist Dr Nan Yao Su, who works at the university research and education center in Davie.
