A woman was found dead inside a home in the east foothills of San Jose on Tuesday, and the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office is investigating it as a homicide, sheriff's officials said.

Officials say the woman's body was found inside a home on Mountain View Avenue around 4 p.m. Tuesday. Neighbors say the home is an Airbnb where separate rooms are rented out.

"It’s crazy, this guy has got a rental unit going on, and I knew something bad would happen over time when you have that many people staying at your place," said Mike Fleming, who lives across the street. "One out of 100, it’s going to turn out bad, and sure enough here we are.”

Two men who were staying at the home Monday said they never saw a woman.

NBC Bay Area reached out to Airbnb, which couldn't verify if the home was used on their site.

Deputies don't have a suspect description and are asking the public for help.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff's office at 408-808-4500 or leave an anonymous tip at 408-808-4431.
