MARYSVILLE — Marysville Police are investigating the death of a 73-year-old Marysville woman, found in her home on the morning of June 8.
A family member went to the victim's residence, located in the 7100 block of 70th Avenue, to check on her, after not hearing from her over the weekend. The family member discovered the victim's body, and called 911 for a medical response at approximately 10:45 a.m. June 8.
