    If there is no immediate clue as to how she died, why are they not investigating it as a possible heart attack? Why a possible murder if there is no immediate indication of how she died? That makes no logical sense. This assumption of criminal activity even without indication is a HUGE part of why the police are finding themselves in such a difficult position with regard to public relations these days. They are being forced to do something unconstitutional (ultimately by the federal government) and the people are not surprisingly unappreciative of that.

    Innocent until proven guilty. The assumption is supposed to be that no crime has occurred, unless evidence indicates otherwise.

      What? Of course they have to suspect foul play. Not everyone who dies of foul play is killed by a gun or knife. They have to determine what killed her 1st. In order to do that it has to be investigated. As for the warrant. Maybe there was something pointing to the house. If she lived in that house they would have to get the warrent before they enter it so if they did find something it would be legal. If you were her family you would want them to be sure
