The death of a 56-year-old woman whose body was found Tuesday morning at an Austin neighborhood home has been ruled a homicide.
Darlene Toliver was found unresponsive about 10 a.m. inside a home in the 5900 block of West Washington Boulevard, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Toliver, who lived in the same block, suffered lacerations to the left side of her body and was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said. An autopsy Thursday found she died of multiple injuries in an assault and her death was ruled a homicide.
Police have not released additional information about the case, which is under investigation by Area North detectives.
