(Memphis) Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating the death of a woman found inside a home on Shadowland Drive.

The victim, a Hispanic woman in her 40’s, may have been inside the home for an extended period of time. Her death is still a mystery.

News Channel 3 spoke to two people who found the body. They work for a mortgage company.

They did not want to go on camera, but they said the house recently went into foreclosure. They were changing the locks when they saw a body lying on the floor.

People living near the scene said they have never seen anyone come in and out of the house in weeks.

“I hadn’t seen anything going on, so that’s kind of shocking,” said one neighbor.

Deputies took the body to the medical examiner to find out what happened.
