Sheriff John Shasteen says 72-year old Carol Evans was found dead inside her house on Camba Road.

The sheriff says Evans daughter found her mother dead in her bed around 10:45 Wednesday morning.

Shasteen says it appears Evans was the victim of a beating.

He says there were no signs of a forced entry.

He also says the house appeared to have been ransacked.

The sheriff says family members last spoke to Mrs. Evans Tuesday night.

The state Bureau of Criminal Investigation has been called in to assist with the investigation.
