Bothell police found Smith during a welfare check at her home in the 200 block of 240th St. S.W. in Bothell.

Smith's employer, Z2Live, contacted the Bothell Police Department that day because they were concerned about Smith's welfare, said Z2Live CEO Lou Fasulo in a statement on Feb. 13.

Collins said Smith died of “homicidal violence," but did not have any further details about the investigation.
