The death of a person who was found with a bag over her head Thursday morning near Goose Island on the Near North Side has been ruled a homicide.

The female, whose age was not known, was found "unresponsive with a bag around her head" at 6:33 a.m. outdoors in the 800 block of West Evergreen, according to Chicago Police.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's office confirmed the death, but she remained unidentified Friday afternoon.
