SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- The Stevens County, Wash., sheriff says a 62-year-old woman was found dead in her Northport home was a homicide victim.

Sheriff Kendle Allen tells The Spokesman-Review of Spokane that investigators are pursuing leads in the death of Narleen Campton.

Her body was found Saturday.

Allen says a neighbor called to report finding Campton dead after not hearing from her for a few days.

The sheriff was not certain when Campton died.

Allen says he's not releasing other details because investigators still have people to interview.
