RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Raleigh police now say a homicide investigation is underway after a 20-year-old woman was found dead on Sunday in an apartment on Hillsborough Street.
The incident was reported just after 7:10 p.m. when someone called to have authorities check on the welfare of a person in the 1500-block of Hillsborough Street, according to a news release from Raleigh police.
Officers found the body of Christina Maria Matos, 20, at the scene, police said.
Her death is being investigated as a homicide.
Multiple Raleigh police cars were seen outside the Signature 1505 apartments, which are located at 1505 Hillsborough St., more than four hours after the news release was sent Sunday night.
