ELGIN — An autopsy was set for Monday to determine the cause of death of a 33-year-old woman who’s body was found inside her west side townhome early Saturday.
Police are considering the death of Lisa E. Koziol-Ellis a homicide.
No suspects were in custody, Elgin Police Commander Glenn Theriault said Sunday.
“At this point we do not know who killed her,” he said. “We will investigate every angle possible until we find the murderer.”
Police were called to her home at 1 Garden Crescent Court at 2:30 a.m. on a report of an injured woman there. She was deceased when officers arrived.
Police are asking anyone who may have knowledge of the crime, or who saw suspicious behavior, to call police — either through dialing 911 or through the city’s anonymous texting system.
Residents may send an anonymous tip by texting 847411 and including ELGINPD in the beginning of the text, along with the message and/or tip information. The Elgin Police Department utilizes tip411, an internet based tool that enables the public to text an anonymous tip to the police.
“This process is 100 percent anonymous; the technology removes all identifying information,” Theriault said
