SPOTSYLVANIA, VA (WWBT) -

Spotsylvania authorities have begun a homicide investigation following the death of a woman found in her home Sunday evening after her employer reported she hadn't shown up for work.

The Spotsylvania Sheriff's Department said that Nancy Mercer, 58, had not reported to work at Med Star Washington Hospital on Sunday, which prompted her supervisors to contact authorities. Sheriff's deputies found Mercer's body on the floor inside her home in the 7800 block of Eastridge Way when they arrived to check on her around 11:40 p.m. Sunday.

The Sheriff's Department is withholding information about the cause of Mercer's death until after an autopsy is completed. If anyone has any information regarding this incident, they are asked to contact the Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Office at 540-582-7115.
