The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department was investigating the death of woman in Valencia Thursday.

A woman's body was found Thursday in an apartment at the Alara Links at Westridge apartments at 25330 block of Silver Aspen Way.

Homicide investigators set up a perimeter at the location and were at the scene all day Thursday.

"It's being handled by the Homicide Bureau as a death investigation," said L.A. County Sheriff's Lt. Dave Dolson. "We just don't know what the cause of death is. Many times we can show up on a dead body and pretty much tell whether it's a natural or a suicide or accident or a homicide. In this case we just don't know yet. The body was found right around 11:30 this morning, and it's a maintenance worker for the complex here."

If you have information about the case, contact the L.A. County Sheriff's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
