EXETER — Authorities have identified a woman whose body was found inside a burned-out mobile home on Tuesday, but the circumstances surrounding her death remain a mystery.

In a statement released Wednesday evening, the state Attorney General’s office identified the victim as 65-year-old Carol Felides.

She was found dead when firefighters were called to the Hayes Mobile Home Park around 4 a.m. on Tuesday to battle the flames that broke out at her home at 66 Hayes Park.

An autopsy was performed Wednesday by Chief Medical Examiner Jennie Duval, but authorities said further investigation would be needed to determine the cause and manner of her death.

The case remains under investigation by the State Police Major Crime Unit, the Exeter Police Department and the state Fire Marshal’s office.

Several investigators were back at the mobile home Wednesday morning and spent the day searching around the property and processing the scene.

The street remained shut down, with barricades on either end to block traffic.

Yellow police tape was strung around the fire-damaged mobile home and a neighbor’s mobile home.

Neighbors said Felides had just moved into the home in recent days. A woman who answered the phone for the park’s management said she had just recently purchased the home.

According to records at the Rockingham County Registry of Deeds, the property was deeded to Felides on June 11.

Paperwork on the deed showed her last address was in Sandown, but other online phone records listed Londonderry as a former residence.
