Austrian authorities are investigating the death of an American woman found Tuesday in her apartment in Vienna. The 25-year-old from Colorado, whose name has not been released, was working as a nanny while studying in the country, reports NBC News. The Local adds she had been there for about three years.

The AP reports she was found half-naked on a mattress in the bedroom next to a "considerable amount of blood" after she failed to show up for a meeting with her employer on Monday. "We are still awaiting the final autopsy report, but are presently treating this as a homicide case," says police rep Thomas Keiblinger. The Local cites detectives as saying no external injuries were noted; Keiblinger adds the blood could signal an internal injury. (Read more Austria stories.)
