Prince George’s County police say they have launched a murder investigation into the death of a woman whose body was found on the 5600 block of Kennedy Street in Riverdale Friday evening.

Police said they went to a house on the block around 8:30 p.m. to check on her welfare, but they would not say what had precipitated the visit. When they arrived, they said, they found a woman’s body inside the house. They said there were no signs of forced entry.

Police would not provide further details on the woman’s age and identity, nor would they say what type of weapon, if any, had been used.
