GEORGIANA, AL (WSFA) -
A death investigation in Butler County is now being classified as a homicide following the results of an autopsy report.
Someone delivered a terrible blow to the town of Georgiana, and closer to home for those living on Wise Street where Dorothy Leatherwood live. She was a widow, 72-years-old.
A friend found Leatherwood's body Wednesday morning in her bedroom after dropping by to pick her up for their weekly Bible study class.
Family members believe the victim knew the person who killed her because there was no evidence of any forced entry into her home.
Butler County Sheriff Kenny Harden says the investigation is on-going and declined to get into how Leatherwood died or what possible motive there might have been. Investigators have already questioned a 'person of interest'.
Dorothy Leatherwood spent more than 30 years in New York where she worked in the medical field before coming back to Georgiana where she cared for her mom who eventually passed away. Her husband died a year ago.
The death is Butler County's first of 2012.
A funeral is planned for Tuesday at 11am at Friendship Baptist Church in Georgiana.
