Elderly Dallas woman found slain in home
Dallas police suspect possible botched burglary in slaying of elderly woman at her home
DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police are investigating whether the slaying of a 78-year-old woman whose body was found at her home was a botched burglary.
Oak Farms Dairy on Sunday night announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and indictment in the killing of Avenell Cowgill.
Police doing a welfare check Saturday at the request of some neighbors discovered Cowgill's body. The house's back door was open.
An autopsy has been ordered. The coroner's office had no additional information for release Monday.
