Crest Hill police say a woman found dead inside a burning home Sunday was murdered before the fire broke out.

The body of 89-year-old Dorothy Dumyahn was in the 2300-block of Caton Farm Road Sunday Morning.

An autopsy performed Monday found she was murdered.

Investigators say they do not believe this was a random attack, and the public is not at risk.

No suspects are in custody.

Dumyahn had lived in the house alone since her husband died eight years ago.
