Police are asking for your help in finding the person responsible for the death of a Quincy woman.

This weekend, a team of Quincy officers canvassed area neighborhoods around 8th and Ohio Streets, where 48-year-old Nancy Streitmatter was last seen.

Fire investigators found her body on Oct. 8 under debris from a fire the night before at Salvage Lumber, at 219 Oak St. in Quincy.
