Woman Found in House Was Murdered

The woman found dead in an abandoned house in Wilson Wednesday was murdered. The woman's body was found in a house on South Pender Street, and was first classified as a suspicious death. In fact, police initially said there were no signs of visible trauma. Now, police say an autopsy shows 42-year-old JoAnn Cynthia Anderson was strangled. They say the vacant house appeared to be used for prostitution and drug use.
