Authorities are looking into the circumstances surrounding the death of 70-year-old woman whose legs were found bound by a scarf-like object inside her Canarsie home, police sources say. 

Noreen Mulzac, 70, was found inside her 105-41 Flatlands 3rd St. apartment by her daughter's boyfriend. He then called police around 2:30 p.m. Monday.
