Authorities say they are investigating the death of a Winchester Star reporter in a house fire as a homicide.

Fauquier County Sheriff Charlie Ray Fox Jr. said in a release Tuesday that authorities confirmed the body found in a burning home on Monday is that of 48-year-old Star reporter Sarah L. Greenhalgh.

Fox says authorities are awaiting autopsy results to determine the cause of death.

Sheriff's Lt. James Hartman said no more details involving Greenhalgh's death will be released at this time.

She was found dead in her Upperville home Monday after an off-duty firefighter saw smoke and called 911. Greenhalgh lived alone in the cinderblock home she rented on a farm for about a year.

Greenhalgh covered Frederick County government for The Winchester Star.

Anyone with further information regarding this incident should contact Detective Brandon Lillard of the Criminal Investigations Division at 540-422-8650 or Fauquier County Crime Solvers at 540-349-1000. A caller's identity can remain anonymous.
