WINOOSKI, Vt. (WCAX) Winooski Police are looking into the untimely death of a woman over the weekend. They have not ruled out foul play, but they are not saying much about their investigation either.

Authorities were called for a welfare check on Saturday after 28-year-old Hannah Keyes didn't show up to work. When they went to her apartment on Audette Street, she was found dead inside. The cause of death has not been released. At last report, police said they were waiting for autopsy results from the state medical examiner as well as findings from their own investigation.

Police have not said what they are investigating and they have not specifically indicated whether they view Keyes' death as suspicious, although they did say they do not believe the public is in any danger.

In the parking lot of the apartment Keyes lived in you can see a silver SUV that sits in the parking lot that has been marked on all doors. Neighbors in the area said that they noticed a police presence through the night on Saturday and feel safe in their community.

Right now Vermont State Police are not involved in the investigation. The mayor of Winooski and the county's top prosecutor had nothing more to add about the case.

Friends of Keyes say she moved to Winooski from Arlington just a few years ago and has two kids. They are safe with family. She did have a fiancé. Police say they have not had contact with him as he was not at the residence when they arrived.
