JAMESTOWN — Guilford County sheriff's deputies are investigating after a woman was found dead in a Bellwood Court home early Saturday.

After locating and getting medical attention for that person, the deputies were asked to check on another family member at the Bellwood Court location, the sheriff's office said in a news release.

The female victim was found dead from obvious traumatic injuries, deputies said. Authorities are investigating the victim's death as a homicide.

The woman's name has not been released.
