Police: Woman found dead in Landover apartment

Posted: Updated:
LANDOVER, Md. - Police say a young mother was found dead in her Prince George's County apartment on Monday.  Police are now searching for her killer.

According to investigators, the victim, 36-year-old Shauntelle Lewis, was found by family members who contacted police.  Apparently, a family member was babysitting Lewis' children overnight and when that family member brought them home, they found Lewis' body.  

Lewis' body was discovered inside her apartment on West Forest Road around 9 a.m.  That location is just steps from the scene of a shooting last week that claimed the life of 3-year-old Knijah Bibb.  

Police have only said that Lewis died of some kind of trauma.  Investigators said there was no sign of forced entry into the home.  CrimeStoppers is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest of the suspect or suspects in this case.
