Death of man in Burnside neighborhood ruled homicide

The Cook County medical examiner's office today ruled the death of a 53-year-old Chicago man a homicide, though police are not classifying their investigation as such.

Leonard Woods died Monday at Advocate Christ Medical Center. After an autopsy today, the medical examiner's office concluded he died as a result of bleeding in his head that was caused by a fall during an assault.

Police said that Woods was in a fight with another person at his home in the 9300 block of South University Avenue Friday and was injured. Calumet Area detectives are conducting a death investigation.

That the death was ruled a homicide does not necessarily imply that a crime took place. The ruling means that Woods' death was caused by another person, but it does not account for intent or other factors.
