Toronto police have ruled the death of a 28-year-old woman found inside an apartment unit in the city’s west-end a homicide.
Officers were alerted to a death inside a building in the Richmond and Niagara streets area at around 5:15 p.m. on Tuesday.
When they arrived, they discovered the body of a 28-year-old woman inside a unit.
Police originally said they were treating the death as suspicious until they receive the results of an autopsy.
On Wednesday evening, police issued a news release saying that after conducting a post-mortem examination, the pathologist has ruled the death a homicide.
Police did not release the cause of death or confirm the woman’s identity.
Homicide investigators are now investigating.
