A woman was found dead in her bed at her Los Angeles home on Friday.

Sharilit Monique Matthews, 36, was found in her home on the 17800 block of Sherman Way. The victim's family and friends had not been able to contact Matthews for nearly a week and police were called to conduct a missing person investigation.

When officers entered the home they found the victim dead in her bed. It appeared that she had been dead for several days. The coroner determined on-scene that Matthew's death was a homicide.
