LINCOLNTON, N.C. - A woman's body was found inside in a home in Lincolnton on Monday.

Investigators are not sure how she died, but they're treating her death as a homicide.

Neighbors said the woman was kind to children in the neighborhood, so they often visited her at home.

Police said a 13-year-old stopped by her house on Monday afternoon.

The back door was unlocked, while the front door was locked.

Neighbors said the boy went into the house, saw the woman on the floor, and went running for help.

The SBI has been called there to help in the investigation.
