WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ore. (KOIN) -- A 71-year-old woman was killed in her Washington County home and two people who knew her are being held for questioning.
Jacqueline Bell was found dead in her home around 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Washington County Sgt. Bob Ray said. Deputies were called to her home on Northwest Lee Street just off 101st Avenue by a person who was concerned about her.
"When deputies arrived they did find the woman deceased and at that point it was determined it was from homicidal violence," Sgt. Ray said.
Investigators canvassed the neighborhood and found two people who they took in for more questioning.
"We do believe they have knowledge or involvement in this case," Ray said. No other people are being sought in this case and investigators won't discuss a motive.
The people being questioned knew Bell, authorities said. She lived at the house with one other family member. Neighbors told KOIN 6 News Bell did not have a husband and that she lived at the house with her grandson.
Thought deputies said people in the neighborhood are safe, resident Jennifer Kveton was unnerved by it all.
"Knowing someone died next door is very scary and I'm very concerned for all involved," she said.
Detectives are calling this a complicated case and are remaining very tight lipped about the investigation. Nearly two days later, suspects are still detained and in custody, but no arrests have been made.
Authorities aren't yet saying anything about how Bell was killed.
