The death of a woman found more than two months ago in the Roseland neighborhood on the Far South Side has been ruled a homicide.

The woman was discovered unresponsive at 6:02 a.m. Aug. 2 in the 10000 block of South LaSalle, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy did not immediately rule on her cause and manner of death, but has since found she died of a gunshot wound to the head and her death was ruled a homicide, according to the medical examiner’s office.

The medical examiner’s office is still trying to identify the victim. Anyone with information about her identity is asked to call (312) 666-0500.
