ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A woman was found dead in an Anchorage apartment and police are investigating the case as a homicide.

Police say they know how the woman died but they’re not immediately releasing details.

A family member returned home late Sunday morning to the Government Hill apartment and found the woman dead in the living room.

Other family members were home but in a different room and were not injured.

Police say detectives determined the death to be an isolated incident and not a random crime.

Police are asking people with information, such as surveillance video, to contact them.
