Virginia State Police is investigating the death of a 38-year-old woman whose body was found Sunday inside an outbuilding on a residential property in the town of Mineral in Louisa County.
The remains of Sara J. Stanley were found after Louisa sheriff’s deputies responded to an 8 p.m. call of shots being fired at a home in the 300 block of West Eighth Street, state police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said in a statement.
Stanley was known to stay at that residence for periods of time, but had no fixed address, Geller said by email in response to a question.
The Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Richmond Field Office is following up on several leads related to a suspect, Geller said.
At this stage, the death is being investigated as a homicide with assistance from the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office. Stanley’s remains were taken to Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond for autopsy and examination.
