A week after the murder of a Kent woman in West Seattle, Seattle Police are still seeking more tips to help solve the case.

Detectives are investigating the killing of 51-year-old Greggette Renee Guy whose body was found March 12 floating in the Puget Sound offshore of West Seattle.

"We have received some tips and are following up on those," said Mark Jamieson, Seattle Police spokesman, during a phone interview Monday. "We encourage anyone who has information to contact us."

Guy's death is an active homicide investigation. Jamieson would not comment about the cause of death of Guy. The King County Medical Examiner's Office released the identification of Guy March 15 but said the cause of death is pending an investigation by the Seattle Police.

At approximately 7:30 a.m. March 12, a resident reported seeing a body floating in Puget Sound approximately 30 feet off-shore of the 3800 block of Beach Drive Southwest. Detectives responded to the scene and determined two days later that the death was a homicide.

Detectives believe Guy parked her 2010 Buick Lacrosse in the 4400 block of Beach Drive Southwest on Sunday night, March 11. She had planned to take a walk along the beach. Guy was found deceased just offshore the next morning.

Anyone with information about the killing of Guy or saw any suspicious activity, vehicles or persons in the area on the evening of Sunday, March 11, can call 911 or the Seattle Police Homicide Tip Line at 206-233-5000. Anonymous tips are welcome.

You can also call Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Guy is survived by her husband Dwight Guy and daughter Darilyn Guy, according to an obituary on the Edline-Yahn & Covington Funeral Chapel website. She was a longtime volunteer with Girl Scouts. Her father, two brothers and two sisters also survive her.

A service is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, March 24 at Edline-Yahn & Covington Funeral Chapel, 27221 156th Ave. S.E., in Kent.

Guy worked as a credit analyst for more than 14 years at Pacific Aero Tech, a Kent aviation and aerospace company, according to the website Linkedin. She graduated from Central Washington University in 1997 and from Highline Community College in 1994.
