Albany -- An Albany woman found dead in her home Monday was murdered. But Albany Police won't say how she was killed.  Now they are looking for a man they want to question.

47 year old Shernita Sloan was found dead inside her Mercer Avenue home. Her daughter went to check her home, because she had not heard from Sloan since Saturday. She found the house ransacked, and her mother dead.

Police are looking for 31 year old Oscar Ingram. Albany Police Lt. Tracey Barnes said "Right now we are looking for a person that we would like to talk to in reference to some questioning. Oscar James Ingram, age 31, who goes by the street name of Pumpkin. If anyone has any information, in reference to this gentleman, knows his whereabouts, we would like them to contact our Detective Division."

Sloan was a disabled mother of three. Investigators aren't releasing her cause of death.
