TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Investigators are searching for clues in the death of a southwest Topeka woman.


Her home, the murder scene, was still being held by police and KBI investigators on Tuesday (9/13).

Police found Sheila Hachmeister, 58, dead in her home Saturday night. Now they're relying on sophisticated crime scene equipment to make sure they don't miss anything.

Topeka Police have not said how she died, their efforts are focused on gathering evidence. Investigators at the home say this crime scene is more difficult, more complex than others.

KBI computerized scene mapping equipment is allowing them to document evidence in great detail. The Topeka Police CSI Commander says it's not normal to hold a crime scene this long; they're leaving no stone unturned.

Residents of this neighborhood at SW 35th and Belle are still shaken up, looking for clues from police as to why this crime unfolded.

Hachmeister worked at St. Francis Medical Center.

There have been no arrests in the case and police aren't saying how long they plan to hold the crime scene, only that they'll be there as long as it takes.
