A New York woman was found murdered in her home after police were alerted to a "foul odor" coming from her apartment.

Tamara Graham was found dead on the floor of her living room in her Brooklyn apartment on the eighth floor on Dec. 15. It's unknown how long she'd been dead, the New York Post reported.

Police revealed that an autopsy showed the small bone in the middle of her neck, known as the hyoid, was crushed. That typically leads investigators to suspect strangulation.
