Police want to speak with anyone who knew a woman found dead in her Auckland home last weekend.

Eunice Ann Lyttle, known as Ann, was discovered at her Mt Roskill house about 11.50am on Sunday.

Today, Detective Inspector Aaron Pascoe said police would like to hear from anyone who knew the 55-year-old and are "particularly interested in speaking to any of her friends or associates who spent time at her home address in Aurora Ave".

Pascoe has said police are treating Lyttle's death as suspicious, and are keeping "an open mind" as to what may have happened.

"We still have a number of enquiries to make and are working to piece together Eunice's movements before her death," he said earlier in the week.

A post-mortem examination was done on Monday, and a scene examination was completed on Tuesday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the investigation team at Avondale Police Station on (09) 820 5784. Alternatively, information can be provided anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
