HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A homicide investigation is underway after a woman was found dead inside her apartment in north Houston, according to police.

On Friday at about 11 p.m., Houston Police Department officers said they responded to a welfare check at an apartment complex at 6106 Werner St. after a woman hadn't been seen for a few days.

Upon arrival, officers found the woman dead inside her apartment. Investigators said she "did not die of natural causes" and that it's a possibility that she was killed multiple days ago.

An HPD detective on the scene told ABC13 that it's early in the investigation, and they are still trying to figure out what exactly happened.

HPD and neighbors said the woman, believed to be in her 60s, was the apartment complex's property manager.

Detectives acknowledged there was a crime, but couldn't say if it was the result of domestic violence or a break-in.
