An autopsy has determined that a 50-year-old woman found dead in a burning home had been asphyxiated, Baltimore Police say.
The body of Tinestta Young was found on the second floor of a burning home in the unit block of S. Morley St., in Southwest Baltimore’s Saint Joseph’s neighborhood, on March 6.
Police learned of the autopsy ruling Wednesday, said police spokesman Jeremy Silbert. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, and detectives have not made any arrests in Young’s killing, he said.
Young was one of several recent homicide victims identified Thursday by city police.
