Homicide investigators are trying to determine how a woman died in southeast Houston last night. Detectives arrived at a home near Lawson and Dismuke off the Gulf Freeway to find a woman dead inside. She was found without clothes on, lying at the bottom of a stairwell. The woman's boyfriend claimed he was upstairs sleeping. However, detectives say the woman's death could be a homicide.

"They questioned him about what happened, and at this point we have not come up with any solid answers," said an officer on the scene.

That man has been taken in for questioning. An autopsy will be performed on the woman to determine how she died.
