Riverview woman found dead on her birthday

- The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is investigating a homicide, after a woman was found dead inside her home in Riverview Monday afternoon.

Hillsborough detectives are on the scene at 6916 Hawthorne Trace Lane.  They say Tahirih Lua D'Angelo was discovered dead on her 39th birthday.

A family member stopping by to check on her around 4 p.m. discovered her body and called 9-1-1.

Since it is still early in the investigation, there isn't a lot of information out about what exactly happened.  All investigators are saying is that the woman suffered upper body trauma.

They're interviewing neighbors, family members, and anyone who might be able to identify a motive for this crime.

The sheriff's office wants assure people who live nearby , that  this crime was not random.

"We don't feel the neighbors in this area are in any danger. It was not random but we are still working through the early phases of the investigation, said Col. Donna Lusczynski with the Hillsborough County Sherrif's Office.

Deputies had to wait a couple of hours  Monday night for a judge to sign a search warrant.

They're hoping some evidence inside the home will point them to a suspect.
