    A 26-year-old woman was found dead in her New Jersey apartment, and police have not yet found how she died — only acknowledging it was not an accident.

    The mysterious case of Carolyn Byington began when coworkers reached out to police to perform a wellness check on her, but cops found Byington unresponsive in her Plainsboro home. She was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

    The senior associate worked at a marketing advertising firm in Princeton, and lived alone.

    The medical examiner’s office has ruled the death a homicide, and police are investigating the case as such. However officials have not said anything about a cause of death or the circumstances of Byington’s death, including whether or not they are looking for suspects or people to question.
