ORIGINAL: The body of a 59-year-old woman discovered Wednesday night in her Thorofare home is being investigated as a homicide by the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office and the West Deptford Police Department.
A family member and a friend discovered Margaret Ann Depietro's body around 11 p.m. while checking on her during a well-check visit after Depietro failed to answer a call earlier in the evening, police said.
Depietro lived alone in an apartment on Highbridge Lane in The Grande complex. Several search warrants are being executed, as police don't believe the death to be a random incident.
The Gloucester County Medical Examiner's Office was to perform an autopsy on Depietro's body Thursday morning.
