BERTIE CO., N.C. -- A house was set on fire to cover a murder in Bertie County, NC, investigators believe. 

The Roanoke-Chowan News Herald says the body of 80-year-old Bessie Mae Slade White was found in her Highway 45 North home Tuesday night.

The paper reports the autopsy revealed she was murdered, but there was no information about how she died.

The North Carolina SBI is helping the Bertie County Sheriff’s Office with the investigation.
