Police aren’t saying much about the murder of a 58-year-old woman in an apartment near The Streets of Southpoint.

However, on Wednesday, police identified the victim as Ella Everette Davis of Greens Hollow Lane.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Durham Police Department reported that it was investigating a suspicious death at an apartment at Greens of Pine Glen in southern Durham. The apartment and townhouse complex is located near Interstate 40, about a mile east of The Streets of Southpoint.

Police have not released the cause of death. Officers were called to an apartment in the 6400 block of Greens Hollow Lane at 10 a.m. Tuesday to check on the welfare of a resident. When they arrived, they found Davis dead inside the apartment.

No motive had been indicated and no arrests had been made late Wednesday.

Police are asking that if anyone has information about Davis or her death to call Investigator Cristaldi at 919-560-4440, ext. 29322, or CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays rewards for information that leads to arrests in felony cases and callers do not have to identify themselves.
