Bothell homicide victim identified

BOTHELL -- A Bothell woman found slain at her home earlier this week was identified Friday as Susann Smith, 37.
Smith died from head injuries, according to the Snohomish County Medical Examiner's Office.
Her death is being investigated as a homicide.
Bothell police on Friday declined to release additional details. Detectives have wrapped up at the crime scene and reopened the roadway near Smith's home, Sgt. Cedric Collins said.
As of Friday, there were no suspects, no arrests and no obvious motive, he said. The police ask anyone with information to call 425-487-5550.
Smith moved to the U.S. from Germany about eight years ago, court records show. She worked for Z2Live, a Seattle technology company.
Z2Live employees called police Tuesday after Smith didn't show up for work. CEO Lou Fasulo released a statement about her death earlier this week.
Smith's co-workers are heartbroken, Fasulo said.
She was passionate and dedicated, he said.
"Susann was an employee of Z2Live for a little over a year, and during her time here brought endless energy, smiles and a creative spirit to her work and the office," he said.
Bothell police aren't saying how long Smith was dead before she was found.
Smith's children are safe and in state custody, officials said.
She and her husband were in the process of divorce. Court records show there was a dispute over child custody. The couple was last in court Jan. 25.
