DELTONA, Fla. --Volusia County Sheriff's Office detectives have released the identity of the woman who was found shot dead in a Deltona home on Monday evening.

Detectives said the 25-year-old woman found dead inside her Deltona home is Monquavia Hamilton. 


Hamilton was discovered fatally shot, according to authorities.

Investigators claim that an electrician who was performing work on the house found her dead inside around 5:30 p.m., according to a news release from the Sheriff's Office.

The home is on 2008 Dearing Ave., near Sullivan Street in Deltona and about five minutes away from Galaxy Middle School.

Detectives say this appears to be an isolated incident.

"We don't have a suspect in custody at this point. We're working on anything we can do to put that person in custody we'll do. We're very much actively working on that as we speak," said Det. Andrew Gant.

Investigators say the electrician who was doing work on the home noticed front door was left open.

According to detectives, he called out for the woman several times and when no one answered, he walked in to check if anyone was home.

That is how he found Hamilton's lifeless body inside the home, stated authorities.

So far detectives say it appears she was targeted, but do not know by who.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call VCSO at 386-248-1777 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS (8477).
