INDIANAPOLIS — The death of a woman found in a house on the near northwest side of Indianapolis has been ruled a homicide, police said Saturday.
Officers were called to check the welfare of a person at a home in the 1800 block of North Warman Avenue, near Lafayette Road and West 16th Street, just before 11 a.m. on Friday.
When officers arrived, IMPD said they found a woman inside the home who had "injuries consistent with trauma." Medics pronounced her dead at the scene.
The Marion County Coroner's Office identified the woman as 77-year-old Cecilia O'Bryan. The office could not narrow down her death to a single cause, classifying it as "mixed modality," but did rule it a homicide.
Anyone with information about the woman's death is being asked to call Detective Ryan Clark at the IMPD Homicide Office at 317-327-3475 or email him at Ryan.Clark@indy.gov. To remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-262-8477 or (TIPS).
