Woman identified in Exeter concrete plant fire; death ruled a homicide
Authorities said Amanda "Amy" Warf, 36, was found dead inside the plant at 2 Hampton Road Thursday morning when firefighters arrived to put out a fire on the second floor.
Following an autopsy performed Friday, Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Thomas A. Andrew determined the manner of her death was homicide.
The cause of her death has not been released, pending further investigation.
A member of Warf's family said the family had no comment on the death when contacted by the New Hampshire Union Leader earlier Friday.
State and local investigators returned to the closed City Concrete facility Friday morning to continue their search for clues into the murder.
Authorities have not said how long the body is believed to have been inside the abandoned City Concrete plant or its condition when firefighters arrived.
Firefighters were unaware of the body when they were first called to the plant after a fire was reported. The case was quickly turned over to the state fire marshal and attorney general's offices after the body was found.
The attorney general's office, state police and Exeter police are being assisted by the Exeter Fire Department, the State Fire Marshal's Office, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
Anyone with information pertaining to homicide is asked to call state police at 271-3636.
