HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The investigation into Saturday's death of a military spouse found dead in her home on the Aliamanu Military Reservation, Hawaii is continuing.

The following is a statement from the U.S. Army:

Catherine Walker, 38, was found at approximately 6:30 a.m., and was already deceased when first responders arrived at the home. Walker's husband is a Soldier assigned to Tripler Army Medical Center.

Special Agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, commonly known as Army CID, are leading the homicide investigation into the death and are working closely with Special Agents from the FBI and officials from the Honolulu Medical Examiner's Office. The Honolulu Medical Examiner's Office conducted the autopsy and classified the death as a homicide earlier this week.

“We are aggressively pursuing all information and leads involving this tragic death,” said Chris Grey, spokesman for Army CID. “At this point in the investigation, we do not believe there is a threat to the local community or that this was a ‘random act' or some type of robbery."

"I can confirm that we have a person of interest in this case who our agents are taking a very hard look at, but it's important to point out that we continue to look at all possibilities and evidence in order to conduct a complete and thorough investigation,” said Grey.

In order to protect the integrity of the investigative process and protect the rights of all involved, no further information will be released at this time. Additional information will only be released at the appropriate time and when the investigation allows.
