Phoenix Woman Found Murdered in Home
The Phoenix Police Department is asking the public's help in finding the person (or persons) responsible for murdering a 57-year-old Phoenix woman who was found dead in her home last night.
Phoenix police Sergeant Tommy Thompson tells New Times that at about 9:30 p.m. yesterday, Phyllis Mizioch was found murdered in her home in the 15000 block of North 12th Street.
Thompson says the body was discovered by a relative and it's believed Mizioch was murdered at some point yesterday.
Thompson wouldn't say how Mizioch was murdered but tells us more details may be released in the next few days.
Police currently have no suspects in the case.
"It could have been the butler in the pantry -- at this point, we're not ruling anyone out," Thompson says.
Anyone with any information in the case is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department Violent Crimes Bureau at (602) 262-6141 or Silent Witness at (480) WITNESS or (480) TESTIGO.
