    Marianne Favro reports on San Jose's 30th homicide of 2013.

    The San Jose police homicide unit has determined that a woman who was found severely injured and later died was not the victim of a homicide.

    The unidentified victim is a 62-year-old woman. Neighbors told NBC Bay Area she looked badly beaten and had cuts on her hands. Police would not comment on how she died, but said she was the victim of "some kind of trauma." 

    On Thursday police Sgt. Jason Dwyer said "yesterday's death that occurred on Lundy Avenue was determined to not be a homicide."

     He did not have any more details.

    A neighbor said the victim called her Wednesday morning and said she was having a hard time breathing. When the neighbor checked in on her, she decided the woman needed immediate attention and dialed 911.

    San Jose police said the fire department called them in on the case after arriving at an apartment complex in the 900 block of Lundy Avenue in north San Jose.

    The initial 911 call for someone in medical distress came in around 10:30 a.m. 

    When officers arrived on the scene they found the victim in an apartment under "suspicious circumstances."

    San Jose currently has 29 homicides so far in 2013.
