Elgin cops investigate killing of woman

Updated: March 4, 2013 2:11PM

Elgin Police were investigating the death of a 33-year-old woman whose body was found in her town home early Saturday. An autopsy was planned for Sunday.

Police said Lisa E. Koziol-Ellis was a homicide victim, but no suspects were in custody as of Sunday evening.

“At this point, we do not know who killed her,” Elgin Police Cmdr. Glenn Theriault said Sunday. “We will investigate every angle possible until we find the murderer.”

Police responded to the home in the first block of Garden Crescent Court at 2:30 a.m. after receiving a report of an injured woman, and officers found Koziol-Ellis’ body.

Police asked anyone with any knowledge of the crime or who saw suspicious behavior to contact them by dialing 911 or using the city’s anonymous texting system. Residents may send an anonymous tip by texting 847411 and including ELGINPD in the beginning of the text, along with the information. “This process is 100 percent anonymous; the technology removes all identifying information,” Theriault said.
