It has been three days since 48-year-old Winchester Star reporter Sarah Greenhalgh was found dead in a fire at her home in Upperville, Va., and now the FBI has been called in to help investigate.

The Fauquier County Sheriff's Office, which made the request, says it is not unusual to ask for assistance from state and federal agencies. Lt. James Hartman says the FBI is offering technical assistance.

He also says multiple search warrants have been executed as investigators talk to and attempt to locate "persons of interest." No one has been named a suspect, but sources tell FOX 5 one of the searches was of an apartment in Gainesville, where Greenhalgh was seen arguing with a man Sunday night.

Greenhalgh covered Frederick County government news and also wrote as a freelancer for several equestrian publications.

Meanwhile, Greenhalgh's family says a memorial service will be held at noon on Friday, July 20 at Trinity Church in Upperville. In lieu of flowers, relatives are asking that donations be made in her name to her high school, the Oldfields School in Sparks Glencoe, Md. or to the National Steeplechase Foundation in Elkton, Md.
