    A homicide investigation is underway in Massachusetts after a 49-year-old woman was found dead, authorities announced Saturday afternoon.

    North Andover police received a call just before 12:30 p.m. for a reported death on Lincoln Street at a two-family home.

    Arriving officers learned that an upstairs neighbor went into the basement and saw her 49-year-old female neighbor dead, according to the Essex district attorney's office.

    Investigators are waiting for a search warrant and the medical examiner's office, the DA's office added.

    The victim's identity has not been released, and no arrests have been made.

    Authorities have not released any other details.

    One neighbor described the neighborhood as peaceful and family-friendly, adding the ongoing police investigation's presence was hard to fathom.

    "It's crazy, it's unbelievable, I'm mean, it's such a quiet neighborhood," he said.

    Another neighbor said that she was a quiet woman, who lived in the house with her brother.

    "She kept to herself," he said. "She was quiet. Really nice woman. I was looking for a job recently and she actually helped me out with the job opportunity so that was really sweet of her. Aside from that she kept to herself most of the time."
