IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. (WHEC)- The Irondequoit Police Department has revealed the identity of the woman found dead in her home on Lake Shore Boulevard as Ingeborg Morley, age 86.
According to Irondequoit Police Chief Richard Tantalo, the investigation has been difficult and time consuming because the victim lived alone, and so nobody was there to say if anything was out of place or wrong at the scene. There was no caretaker or anyone else regularly at the home.
Neighbor Mary Collins Kaduc says that she would occasionally see Morley outside raking the leaves or doing other yard work, and the two would have conversations often.
"I was very disturbed, it was very upsetting know that she was so healthy and outgoing and strong," she said, "She was doing so well, she was living her best life."
In addition, there are no signs of forced entry, one reason police don't think there's any threat to the wider community.
Kaduc, meanwhile, hopes the case is solved soon, although she says she still feels very safe living in her neighborhood.
"It doesn't make any sense, I don't know what kind of person would do that," she said, "Whoever it is, I hope they find him and he gets the justice deserves."
