Garland police are investigating the death of an elderly woman as a murder.
71 year old Janet Vanderslice was found dead inside her home in the 6200 block of Lennox Lane in Garland. Investigators think she was stabbed to death. Her cause of death will have to be confirmed by the Dallas County Medical Examiner.
Police were called to the home Saturday night after a family member had gone by Vanderslice’s home to check on her and found her dead inside. There was no sign of forced entry.
Investigators spent Sunday afternoon using a metal detector to search for any clues in Vanderslice's front yard.
Police are asking for anyone with information to come forward.
