HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A death investigation in underway in eastern Henrico after a person, covered in blood, showed up at a Richmond Police station and told officers she had killed someone, multiple law enforcement sources told CBS 6 reporter Jon Burkett.

Henrico Police later responded to the 800 block of Pleasant Street in Highland Springs and discovered a person inside a townhouse was dead.

Police are collecting evidence in an effort to determine exactly what happened inside the townhouse.

The townhouse is located in the Viviana Hall community near Highland Springs Elementary School.

Police have not yet released the names of the people involved in this incident.

Neighbors said the women who lived in the townhouse had only been there a few months.

"I know she was living with a girl, or the girl was staying there a majority of the time," said Kim Jackson, who lives adjacent to the crime scene. "I never heard any arguments, no problems so it’s just shocking."

Sources said the victim appeared to be stabbed.

"Every time I see them together they were smiling and laughing," said Jackson.
