According to preliminary information, police say the woman’s family had been worried given her absence and decided to look for her car in the indoor garage of her condo building, where they found her unconscious. 

Police say there were “traces of violence” on the body and that a perimeter has been erected for investigators and crime scene technicians to analyze. 

A full day later, on Tuesday evening, police said the crime scene was still active and they couldn't yet provide an update on whether it was deemed a homicide or a suspicious death, as they were waiting for the results of the autopsy.
