An 81-year-old woman was stabbed to death in Vermont, authorities have determined.
Police investigating the death of Helen Jones in Arlington are exploring possible connections to recent burglaries in the area.
State police say they were called Wednesday evening by a neighbor after a friend of Jones, an Arlington resident, was called by an out-of-state relative and found her dead inside her Buck Hill Road home.
After an autopsy, stab wounds to Jones' torso were determined to be the cause of her death.
Anyone with information is asked to call Vermont State Police 802-442-5421.
