Windsor Police Investigating A Homicide

Windsor police are investigating a homicide.

Around 10pm on Sunday officers were sent to an apartment building  at the corner of University Ave. west and McKay Ave. for a report of a sudden death.

Once officers arrived, they were able to confirm that an adult female was dead inside an apartment unit. 

An investigation was launched, and the death was deemed to be suspicious in nature and after an autopsy performed yesterday (Mon June 11) the death has been classified as a homicide.

The victim has been identified as a 31-year-old female from Windsor — her name has not been released.

Investigators have interviewed several witnesses and believe the victim was in her residence in the University Avenue West apartment building during the evening hours of Saturday June 9 and was found deceased in her residence during the evening of Sunday June 10.
