The death of a woman whose body was found in an abandoned building in Exeter, N.H., on Thursday has been ruled a homicide, the New Hampshire Attorney General’s said in a statement.
The victim was identified as Amanda “Amy” Warf, 36, of Hampton. While the chief medical examiner Dr. Thomas A. Andrew, determined that the manner of her death is homicide, officials have withheld the cause pending an investigation.
The New Hampshire Union Leader reported that Warf worked at the administrative offices for Exeter Hospital, located about a quarter-mile from the abandoned concrete plant where her body was found.
Authorities were alerted to the property to douse a fire on the second floor.
In addition to the Attorney General’s office, the investigation is being conducted by the New Hampshire State Police, the Exeter Police and Fire, the State Fire Marshall’s Office, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
Police are asking that anyone with information about the homicide to call the New Hampshire State Police at 603-271-3636.
