ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, Md. (WUSA9) -- Police in Anne Arundel County are searching for answers after a woman and a dog turned up dead in a home in quiet, rural Davidsonville.
Police say it was right before noon on Friday, when two acquaintances found the deceased woman with trauma to her body in a home in the 3300 block of Royale Glen Court.
Police say the two also found a dead dog. Police investigated throughout the day and into the night, stringing up crime tape while investigators walked back and forth between the house and their Mobile Crime Lab.
Justin Mulcahy works for the Anne Arundel County Police Department. He said, "I would say tentatively at this point, we're definitely not ruling out foul play as a possibility in this case."
Police won't say who the woman is, or what kind of trauma she suffered. Mulcahy explains, "In terms of the injuries at this juncture, we really can't elaborate on the nature of any of the potential physical injuries, at this point based on where we're at in the investigation."
And so a mystery is taking hold in this quiet, rural, spread-out town. The crime tape and officers are standing out like sore thumbs among the expanses of lawn, and sprawling homes.
Neighbors who live on the block didn't want to talk to us. Matthew Todd lives down the block. He drove by to see what was going on.
"Personally, my mother's kind of freaking out more than I am but, we're trying to lock our doors and trying to be more cautious than we usually are."
Nick Cassidy of Davidsonville also drove by to see the scene, "I was stunned, I mean this is a pretty nice area around here, you don't really think anything is going to happen like that," he said.
The Anne Arundel County Police Department's Homicide Unit is asking anyone with information to contact Detective Vince Carbonaro of the Homicide Unit at 410-222-3453.
