The death of a 26-year-old Uptown woman following an alleged domestic altercation last month was a homicide, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Newly-released autopsy results show Isabel Rosin was smothered to death.

Chicago police reclassified the case as a homicide Sunday afternoon, according to CPD spokesperson Kellie Bartoli and department records. CPD previously listed it as an aggravated domestic battery. The investigation remains active, Bartoli said, but no one is in custody.

Police responded to Rosin’s apartment in the 1200 block of West Carmen around 2:50 p.m. April 28 after a 911 caller reported that he thought his wife was dead, according to dispatch records. Arriving officers found Rosin unconscious and took a man into custody at the scene.

A CPD spokesperson last month said Rosin was injured during “a domestic-related altercation.”

Detectives executed a search warrant at Rosin’s apartment around 3 a.m. on April 29. Rosin was pronounced dead about three hours later, according to medical examiner records.

Rosin had worked as a supervisor at LensCrafters and graduated from DePaul University, according to her LinkedIn page.
