ENFIELD, Conn. (AP) — Authorities have ruled an Enfield woman’s death a homicide after her body was found last month behind the housing complex where she lived.

The body of 62-year-old Pamela Cote was found on Oct. 28 in a wooded area of Lafayette Park.

Police Chief Carl Sferrazza says the medical examiner’s office determined she died from asphyxiation.

Sferrazza says the investigation remains ongoing and that he’s confident at least one arrest will be made.

The park is located behind Windsor Court, which is owned by the Enfield Housing Authority. It provides residences for elderly and disabled people.

Officials say there’s no reason for residents to be worried about their safety.

Deputy Chief Gary Collins says police aren’t releasing further details about the slaying.
