The death of a 43-year-old woman in March in the Northwest Side Avondale neighborhood has been ruled a homicide.

An autopsy did not immediately rule on the Palatine resident’s death, but has since found that she died of multiple injuries due to an assault, according to the medical examiner’s office. Her death was ruled a homicide.
