The U.S. Embassy in Mexico says an American woman has been found dead in the central Mexico city of San Miguel de Allende.

The Embassy lists the woman's name as Joyous Heart, but gives no information on her hometown or cause of death.

Asked about the case, the prosecutors' office in northern Guanajuato state said Thursday that a woman was found stabbed to death in her home on Feb. 1. Her throat has been slashed.

The prosecutors' statement did not name the victim, but gave a case file number that matched descriptions in local press reports of Heart's killing.

San Miguel de Allende is a colonial city located in Guanajuato state and is popular with American tourists and expats.
