NORFOLK, Va. - Police are investigating the death of a 62-year-old woman.

Just after 2 a.m. on Friday, police responded to a home in the 900 block of Grayson Street to check on the well-being of a woman.

The woman was found unresponsive inside of the home.

Police have identified the woman as Nancy M. Green.

The owner of the property tells News 3 that she has been a tenant there for about seven months.

"To me, she was a real friendly person," says Eily Anthony, owner of the house. "I really enjoyed her as a tenant."

Green is one of eleven siblings, according to her family.

"She was my favorite aunt and I'm going to miss her, it's just something I can't get over," says Janesia Lane, Green's niece. "She was always smiling, always caring, always cheerful."

Detectives are investigating Green's death as an active homicide.

Her family says her boyfriend took her life, but police would not confirm that.

Corporal Melinda Wray, Public Information Officer, says they have not charged anyone, but police are pursuing several leads.

The cause of death will be determined by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
