SPOKANE-- Spokane Police say the search for Sharlotte McGill's killer has gone undercover.

Officers said Sharlotte McGill was walking her dog Thursday when a man jumped out of the bushes, stabbed her several times and fled.  McGill was taken to the hospital and rushed into surgery. She died Thursday afternoon.

Police say you won't see as many uniformed officers in the neighborhood where McGill was attacked, but they're still working the case.

Police detained a person of interest the day of the fatal stabbing. That man has never been named a suspect. His clothes were taken to be tested for blood. Detectives say they have enough information to believe that man was not connected to the stabbing.

Detectives are working sources and waiting on forensic evidence from the crime lab. Detectives pulled evidence from a stolen car battery and processed two vehicles for fingerprints.

Neighbors say they're not going to live in fear.

Construction work is resuming and the police presence has dropped.
