The daughter of an elderly woman found dead in their northern New Jersey home is now being sought as a "person of interest" in her mother's death. Authorities say 41-year-old Tina Lunney was last seen by relatives on Friday, the day after the body of 74-year-old Marie Zoppi was found in the Fairfield home she shared with Lunney's family.

Zoppi's death has been ruled homicide, but authorities would not say Sunday whether Lunney was considered a suspect.

Essex County proseuctor's say Lunney's husband found Zoppi unconscious Thursday morning on the floor of her bedroom, and she was pronounced dead a short time later. They would not provide further details, citing the ongoing investigation.
