Woonsocket cops probing woman's death as homicide

Updated:

WOONSOCKET, R.I. (AP) — Police say the death of a 57-year-old woman at a residence in Woonsocket is being treated as a homicide.

Police said they responded around 7:30 p.m. on Monday to an apartment on Rathbun Street to check on the condition of a tenant. They found Donna Pike dead inside.

Detective Jamie Paone said she couldn't immediately provide any other details about the condition in which Pike was found or how she died. She said Pike's landlord called police after not seeing or hearing from her for a couple of days, which was unusual.

The investigation is continuing.
