NANTICOKE — Troopers say a woman was killed in a “random” home invasion and robbery in Luzerne County.

Officials said they were called to the scene on East Grand Street in Nanticoke after 10 a.m. Friday.

Troopers identified the victim as Gertrude Price, 97, of Nanticoke.

Officers say the woman was discovered around 10 a.m. by family members, who came to check on her when she wouldn’t answer the phone.

Police say they were told the lights were on inside the house around 11p.m. on Thanksgiving night which neighbors say is extremely uncommon, so they believe the crime happened late Thanksgiving night.

An autopsy will be done on Saturday.

No one has been arrested.
