DAVIDSONVILLE, Md. (WJZ) — New details on a story WJZ has been tracking about a woman found dead in her home in Davidsonville.

Police are officially calling Nicole Burgess’ death a homicide.

Christie Ileto has the very latest.

We’re learning more about what happened inside Nicole Burgess’ home that night. The chief medical examiner says Burgess was stabbed to death. The motive remains a mystery.

Another bomb drops on a quiet Davidsonville neighborhood Saturday, just a week after police say acquaintances found 37-year-old Nicole Burgess’ lifeless body in her home on Royale Glen Court.

“It appears to be trauma,” said police.

But now officials report that trauma shows Burgess was stabbed to death multiple times, and so was her pit bull mix dog.

Those at Burgess’ home Saturday followed WJZ through the neighborhood before asking us to leave the area.

“We kind of would like a lot of the information to come out,” said Marjorie Erickson.

But some neighbors like Marjorie Erickson say she’s hoping more details will shed light on the violent act that happened in a neighborhood many are calling a peaceful place to live.

“It is a very safe neighborhood. We’ve not really had anything happening here. It’s kids and families,” she said.

“It’s pretty shocking because you don’t expect that,” another neighbor said.

Police say it appears Burgess’ death and the death of her dog are related, but right now it’s unclear if it was a targeted or random incident.

Some residents feel this is an isolated incident and hope life can continue to go back to normal.

“Nothing that really scared people and made them lock  their doors in fear,” said Erickson.

Neighbors tell WJZ police activity has died down since last week. The person responsible remains on the run.

Anne Arundel County Police are asking anyone with information to contact the police department.
