SEQUIM, Wash. (AP) Authorities continue to investigate the death of a 57-year-old Sequim woman after an autopsy revealed that she died of traumatic injuries due to homicidal violence.

The Peninsula Daily News reports the body of Makah tribal member Valerie Claplanhoo was found Jan. 2 in her Sunbelt Apartments unit. The complex is operated as a facility for the chronically homeless.

The Sequim Police Department is leading the investigation.

Police Chief Sheri Crain would not comment Thursday on suspects or persons of interest in the case.

Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney-Coroner Mark Nichols said Thursday more information on how Claplanhoo died will be described in an autopsy report that he will likely receive next week. He says she was not shot.
