NEW HOLLAND, Pa. — The Lancaster County District Attorney's Office announced this week that police are investigating the death of a 65-year-old New Holland woman earlier this month as a homicide.

The body of Nora Sanchez was found Sept. 1 in her home on the 300 block of East Man Street in New Holland by police sent to conduct a welfare check, according to Lancaster County District Attorney Heather Adams. 

An autopsy conducted Sept. 2 determined Sanchez died of strangulation, with evidence of sexual assault. 

No arrests have been made, Adams said.

"Investigators continue to progress through the case, but citizens should continue to be vigilant until an arrest is made," Adams said in a statement. "Anyone with information related to the case is encouraged to call the New Holland Borough Police Department at 717-354-4647."
