A 60-year-old woman who was largely confined to her bed was found strangled on the northwest side, and police believe robbery was a motive.
The woman's caretaker arrived at the apartment in the 10 block of Burress about 3 p.m. Wednesday and found the woman, whose name has not been released, dead.
"The victim had lived in the complex for some time and required help getting in and out of her bed," police said.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
