A spokesman for the task force would not confirm if she was found with a gunshot wound. He said 48-year-old woman’s death is being investigated as a homicide.

Her autopsy results and identity have not been released by the Lake County coroner’s office.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is “currently very active,” the spokesman for the county task force said.
