OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City Police are investigating yet another homicide in the metro.

A woman’s body was found inside her home Saturday after police were called to check on her.

It happened in a neighborhood near S.W. 104th St. and Penn. Ave.

Neighbors said the entire street was blocked off Saturday afternoon.

Monday a lot of questions remain about what happened.

Neighbor Ron Harris said, “I was walking in the back and she (another neighbor) said, ‘What’s going on out front?’ I came out and there were five or six police cars.”

It was a shocking scene for the neighborhood; police cars surrounding the victim’s home.

OKC Sgt.Jennifer Wardlow said, “I don’t know who the calling party was but someone called 911 and said they wanted us to go to this house.”

Police were checking the welfare of 57-year-old Shelia Stanley.

They said there was trauma to her body, leading investigators to label this a homicide.

Wardlow said, “At this point we don’t have any suspects named in the case and we have made no arrests.”

Harris said, “We were concerned if it was something to be worried about.”

Neighbors said they really did not know Ms. Stanley but they said they believe she lived alone.

Her car is still in the driveway and a few lights are still on while neighbors try to figure out what may have happened. 

Harris said, “We really don’t know what’s going on.”

The Medical Examiner’s office has not released an official cause of death.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma City Police are asking anyone with information to call the Homicide Tip Line at 297-1200
