BOTHELL -- Detectives are staying tight-lipped about the homicide of a Bothell woman found dead at her home earlier this week.
The woman's two young children have been found safe and were taken into protective custody, according to police and Child Protective Services.
Police have not released any details about possible suspects or a motive in the killing.
The Herald is not naming the woman until the Snohomish County Medical Examiner's Office confirms her identity, and her family is formally notified of her death.
That had not happened as of Thursday evening, according to police.
The woman's body was found Tuesday morning in the 200 block of 240th Street SW after her employers called police when she didn't show up for work.
Investigators spent the past few days at the scene collecting evidence, Sgt. Cedric Collins said Thursday. They also obtained a judge's permission to search the home.
Court papers show the woman who lived at the home moved to the U.S. from Germany about eight years ago. She and her husband were in the process of divorcing.
