Police Believe New York Socialite Was Murdered In Her Home

Officials say a prominent New York socialite was killed in her home earlier this week.

Eighty-three-year-old Lois Colley lived in North Salem, New York, with her husband Eugene Colley, the millionaire owner of more than 100 McDonald's franchises.

"Who goes to a house where there was no robbery, no money missing, nothing else, and they murder this poor woman?" one resident said.

Residents told WCBS Lois Colley's death shocked the small town, which hasn't seen a murder in four years.

Police say Colley died of blunt force trauma to the head. There is no motive or suspect in the case yet, but a reward is being offered for anyone with information about the killing.
