Two years after Patsy Lewis found dead in her Guelph home, police continue to investigate her death.

Police have never released her cause of death.

"Investigators believe the death of Patsy Lewis was not accidental, and continue to investigate this as a homicide," police said in a release Tuesday. "To preserve the integrity of the ongoing investigation, the cause of death will not be released, nor will any specific details pertaining to the investigation itself."

Several officers have been involved in the investigation, the force said. That has included collecting witness statements and executing search warrants at Lewis' home as well as other locations.

A person of interest was identified by police in 2014 but no one has ever been charged in the case.
