Woman Found Raped, Murdered In Englewood Building

CHICAGO (CBS) — Autopsy results were expected Friday on a woman who was found raped and murdered in a vacant building in the Englewood neighborhood.

Witnesses flagged down police about 6:30 p.m. when they saw the woman’s dead body in a vacant building in the 6300 block of South Laflin Street, according to police News Affairs Officer Michael Sullivan.

A source indicated it appeared she was sexually assaulted and murdered.

The woman was identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office as Juanita Wilson, 35, of the 8000 South Ada Street. The victim, who was found partially clothed, will be examined today, according to a spokeswoman for the medical examiner’s office.

Her autopsy was to be conducted Friday.

    stupid comments like these are not necessary……a woman who I knew for over 20 years was brutally murdered….thank goodness the person was caught……if you don’t have anything sympathetic to say about this or anything else on this site then you should not comment……this family is really taking this really hard.
