CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia State Police are investigating what they say could be a homicide in Jefferson County.
Edna Mae Trout, 57, of Mount Airy, Md., was found dead Friday about 4 p.m. in her van off Bloomery Road near the Millville power station, police said.
Police described Trout's wounds as "severe," but have not released any more information about the nature of the wounds or how she died.
"We're in the initial phases of this investigation, and we don't want to say too much that it would compromise the investigation," state police Capt. Rob Blair said Saturday.
