Police Investigate Death of 73-Year-Old Dallas Woman

Officers found victim's home in disarray

Police in Dallas are investigating the death of a 73-year-old woman as a murder.

Dallas Police spokeswoman Melinda Gutierrez said in a statement Saturday that a relative of Penny Terk visited the woman's home Friday afternoon because she had not heard from Terk. When she arrived at Terk's home the door was ajar and the inside was in disarray.

Police found Terk inside, dead from "homicidal violence."

No additional detail was immediately available. The investigation was ongoing.
