ROCKFORD (WIFR) – There’s new information on the murder of an elderly woman found in her home last night.

Police say there is one personal item missing from her home, though there were no signs of forced entry.

85-year-old Ocie Hughes was found dead on Martha Avenue last week after neighbors heard her screams for help. The Winnebago County Coroner’s Office say they are waiting to release the cause of death until after police have finished investigating. She was the mother-in-law of a Rockford police detective.
