Feb. 6, 2003 – Police have released the name of a woman whose body was found Jan. 31 by a driveway in the Hull Bay/Brass View area. She was Tomasina Amparo de Gonzalez, 42, of the Dominican Republic.
Published and broadcast reports said Amparo was know to have spent time in the lower Kronprindsens Gade area but didn't necessarily reside in that neighborhood.
At the time the body was found, police determined the woman had been dead for up to three days. The death was not immediately classified as a homicide. (See "Body of unidentified woman found in Hull Bay".)
However, four days later, Dr. Francisco Landron, medical examiner, told the Source an autopsy determined that the woman had sustained "injury to one portion of the head" resulting in "pockets of internal hemorrhaging."
The next day police pronounced the death a homicide.(See "Woman died of head trama ruled a homicide".)
An investigation is ongoing and police ask anyone with information about the crime to call 715-5534.
