ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police officers responded to a park in northeast Albuquerque where a woman was found dead Friday morning.

Much of Stardust Skies Park, near Montgomery and Pennsylvania, was blocked off as police investigated the homicide.

Neighbors believe the victim was a homeless woman who had been living at the park for a while. They said she was always kind and very soft spoken.

A neighbor told KOB 4 that a lot of people looked out for her, offering food and clothing.

“My last time I saw her was probably a couple days ago on a walk,” one neighbor said. “I told her, ‘I’m just so worried about you being out here all the time,’ and she said, ‘No, I can take care of myself, people are friendly.'”

Police didn’t say how the woman was killed, but neighbors said it appeared she was beaten to death. They hope whoever did this is caught.

Police are still investigating the death. At this time, they have no suspects or information on a motive.
