Police don’t know how Dews died. Her death is being considered suspicious.

Authorities are questioning her husband and other family members in hopes of unraveling the mystery, Sandberg reported.

“We don’t have any suspects at this time; we don’t know if we have a crime at this time; we don’t know the cause of her death, how she came to be in the location that she was found,” Devens said.

An autopsy will be performed.
