Police: Woman Killed on Chicago's West Side

A woman was found dead early Tuesday in her West Garfield Park neighborhood apartment after her roommate posted on social media that he had killed her, police sources said.

About 2:30 a.m., officers performing a well-being check in the third-floor apartment in the 4300 block of West Flournoy found the 49-year-old woman unresponsive, police said.

She was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police. The cause of her death was not immediately known, but Area North detectives were investigating the death as a homicide. The Cook County medical examiner’s office could not immediately confirm the fatality.

A police source said the woman’s roommate had posted on social media that he had killed her.

The roommate, a man whose age was not immediately known, was being questioned in connection with the homicide, which may be domestic in nature, police said.
