Donna Lawrence was found by family members after they went to check on her.
The apartment complex where Lawrence lived at is located on Schoenher Road, between 13 Mile and Masonic Boulevard.
Neighbors and those working in the area saw a suspect, who was said to be wearing a red T-shirt and khaki shorts, knocking on her window Wednesday morning and calling out her name. The man is believed to be in his 20s or 30s. Lawrence did let the suspect in so it is assumed that she probably knew her killer.
The suspect was then seen a short time later leaving the apartment soaking wet. He drove off in Donna Lawrence’s car, a blue 2000 Daewoo Nubira with an orange Detroit sticker on the rear window. The license plate on that vehicle is DAC 5379.
Donna Lawrence had a history of selling some of her prescription medications to make ends meet. It is unknown at this time if that had anything to do with her murder.
