A 12-year-old girl whose body was found Monday morning in a South Side alley was strangled and her death ruled a homicide, a Cook County medical examiner's office spokesman said Tuesday afternoon.

Jahmeshia Conner, a fifth grader at O'Toole Elementary School, was last seen Nov. 15.

A passerby saw her body laying in an alley in the 6400 block of South Marshfield, just blocks away from her home.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office official identified the victim during the autopsy, though her family had given identification after seeing photographs a day earlier, the Chicago Tribune reported.

There's no word on funeral arrangements.
