Police officers followed a trail of blood from the living room of an apartment into the bedroom.
There they found Towanda Harris, 46, lying dead on the floor of her own bedroom in a pool of blood in an apartment on the 1400 block of Minnehaha Avenue East at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, May 10.
As her 10-year-old niece described it, Harris' eyes were "floating backwards."
A morning fire on Sunday, April 25, likely caused by a space heater, sent a 3-year-old boy and his father to the hospital.
The fire happened on the third floor of an 11-unit apartment building 1800 block of East Seventh Street.
