      Today, the VPD identified the victim as 87-year-old Elizabeth Poulin.

      On November 24, her body was found inside her apartment near Kingsway and Kerr Street. This came after a 9-1-1 call around 8 a.m. on November 24.

      "Based on the information collected so far, investigators do not believe that the public is at risk,” Sgt. Jason Robillard said in a police news release.
