CHESAPEAKE -- Police ruled the death of a woman in her Chesapeake apartment on Sunday as a homicide.

The body of 26-year-old Rachel M. Abshire was found in her home in the 10th block of Kingsbridge Way around 11:00 a.m.

Her neighbors are uneasy after learning someone killed the mother of two in this usually-quiet neighborhood.

'Everyone is paying attention to everyone who looks suspicious,' said Adam Stein. 'It knocks on everybody's door when something like this happens.'

One neighbor who did not want to be identified told 13News on Sunday, 'There was an older gentleman down on the corner near the main entrance. He was on the phone screaming 'there had been an accident, she's dead, she's dead.''

The investigation into Abshire's death continues. Anyone with information can call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
