Lawmen were called to the home on Killis Murphy Road outside of Pollocksville around 7:45 a.m. Wednesday. The elderly woman had been found dead by her grandson.

Deputies say they had some initial concerns over the woman's death and the SBI was called in to assist with the death investigation and to process the scene.

After an autopsy this morning, the Sheriff's Office says no foul play is suspected.
