A 60-year-old woman who was found dead with knife wounds at her home in Lancashire has been named by police.
The body of Sadie Hartley, 60, was found late on Friday night by police after an employee became concerned she had not been in touch.
She was discovered dead with "a number" of knife wounds at the £450,000 detached, stone built house on Sunny Bank Road in the village of Helmshore, Lancashire.
Police said she is yet to be formally identified but the body is believed to be that of Ms Hartley.
No arrests have been made.
It is thought Ms Hartley was last seen alive on Thursday at a conference in Manchester with a colleague.
She is believed to have returned home and last made contact with family on Thursday evening.
An employee called police on Friday evening at around 10.40pm after concerns that she had not been in touch that day, which was unusual.
We are in the early stages of our inquiries and are working to establish exactly how Sadie has come about these injuries. We have a large team of detectives dedicated to following all lines of inquiry. Specialist officers are supporting Sadie's family at this difficult time.
