Police say the body found in the entryway of an upscale home Wednesday is probably that of 86-year-old Patricia Bostrom.

A Piedmont police captain says investigators don't consider the case a homicide, but believe the woman's body was moved after she died.

Investigators are looking at financial records to see if any crimes occurred, such as someone possibly cashing her Social Security checks.

Police are also questioning a "person of interest" in the case.
