Dunbar police have released the name of the victim in the homicide investigation.

Tanisha Hairston, 29, of Charleston is the woman whose body was found Tuesday morning in the Roxalana Hills Drive area, Dunbar police said.

Police responded about 7 a.m. Tuesday to the 200 block of Roxalana Hills Drive after a report that some suspicious items had been discovered in the parking lot. Officers located several items lying in the parking lot that had blood on them, along with bullet casings.

While conducting search of the area, officers found the body of a female who appeared to have been shot. The Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office was called to assist with the investigation.

No suspects have been identified at this point.

A neighbor who came across blood and a bullet casing and then called police said the scene was in a poorly lit corner of the neighborhood prone to strange behavior.
