51-Year-Old Woman Killed In Swansea

SWANSEA, Mass. — The state medical examiner’s office says an autopsy on a 51-year-old Swansea woman found dead in her home was inconclusive and more tests are needed.

A relative found Lisa Mello’s body in her home early Saturday morning. Local and state police are investigating the case and are labeling Mello’s death as suspicious.

Officials with the medical examiner’s office say an autopsy was performed Sunday but didn’t reveal the cause of death. They say more tests are needed, including a toxicology screening that can take up to eight weeks to complete.

No arrests have been made. Police say they have been interviewing people who knew Mello.
