Homicide investigators are looking into the death of a Deseret News reporter found dead inside her home this morning.

Forty-two year old Norma Wagner was found early this morning after her husband called 911.

Investigators have been on scene most of the day trying to piece together what happened. Late today police said the death is suspicious and that her husband's story detailing what happened wasn't adding up. However, they are not prepared to call it a homicide.

Employees at the Deseret News are mourning her death and remembering who they call a wonderful person and a wonderful journalist.

Rick Hall/Managing Editor, Deseret News: "A bunch of them went to lunch today to reminisce. They are working, they are doing what they are supposed to be doing. I think they are doing okay, but it's not easy."

Neighbors say they did not hear the couple fighting or spot any problems recently. But police say they were called to the home for a domestic disturbance at the end of May.
