LAKE BRIDGEPORT (1080 KRLD) - The early July death of a Wise County woman has now been ruled a homicide. 

Investigators say early on the morning of July 5th, Lauren Whitener's body was found in her burned-out Lake Bridgeport home. 

The cause of death was not clear at the time but now the medical examiner says she was murdered before the fire. 

The Wise County Sheriff says his investigators have interviewed more than three dozen people and they have identified what he describes as "...multiple potential suspects."
