An autopsy determined an 87-year-old woman found dead in her South Side apartment was the victim of a fatal assault.
Mae Brown suffered multiple injuries from an assault, and her death Saturday was ruled a homicide, according to the Cook County medical examiner.
The victim was discovered unresponsive in his wheelchair inside his home at Lincoln Perry Senior Apartments in the 3200 block of South Prairie Avenue around 3:40 p.m. Saturday, according to Chicago Police.
Officers were alerted by a witness who was unable to get hold of Brown, police said.
No one had been arrested in connection with Brown’s death, police said.
