A relative called 911 after finding the body inside the home around 5:30 p.m., Sheriff Donnie Harrison said.

Harrison said it appears Paula McCance, 83, was killed inside her home, off of N.C. Highway 42. Her cause of death was not released.

McCance lived alone but her sister was supposed to be moving in with her on Tuesday.

    Who would do a "sorry" thing like this? Live to be 83 and some low life take your life away, I hope they give the person who did this life. How sad, what is this world coming to?

    Does anyone from WRAL proof the articles before they are posted?
    The **cause** of her death was murder; the **method** of her killing was not released.
