ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Anchorage police are investigating the death of a woman, found in her home Wednesday, as a homicide.

The woman was identified as Lorene Boehly, 60.

Police say they were called to Boehly's home Wednesday afternoon by one of Boehly co-workers after she failed to show up for work.

Police found Boehly dead inside the East Anchorage home. Also in the home was William Willett, 55, who was drifting in and out of consciousness. Investigators said Willet, who also lived at the home, was taken to the hospital for treatment of a drug overdose.

Police did not disclose the cause of death but said Boehly appears to have suffered from a trauma. The investigation is continuing and no arrests have been made.

Boehly is the third homicide victim in the city so far this year.
