Homicide unit investigating woman's death in Green Valley Ranch

DENVER - An investigation is underway into how a woman died at her Green Valley Ranch home on Wednesday.

The victim's family told 7NEWS there are questions about whether the death of the woman in her mid-30s was a homicide or suicide, but said they believe what happened was criminal.

Police said no one is in custody, and while homicide detectives are investigating, they are not calling the death a homicide. The coroner's office says a cause of death has not been determined.

People who live near the home on the corner of 45th Avenue and Ensenada Street said the victim lived there with her husband, and that they had seen police at the house in the past.

Denver Police Department Records Coordinator Mary Dulacki declined to release any details about prior police calls to the address "to protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation."

On Wednesday, 7NEWS saw officers carrying boxes out of the home before a covered body was brought out by the Denver Medical Examiner's Office and taken away. The investigation started at around 3 p.m. and lasted into the night with crime tape covering the yard.

On Thursday, crime tape remained on the door of the home.
