The Cook County Medical Examiner’s autopsy report revealed that Aurelia Wilbourn, 64, was killed by a knife wound to her neck in an apparent homicide.

Her car, keys and cell phone were all missing.

Surveillance cameras in the Roseland neighborhood are being reviewed and may help police find Wilbourn’s killer.

The results of the autopsy report now make the case a murder investigation.

64-year-old Aurelia Wilbourn was pronounced dead at the scene at her home on the 10800 block of South Calumet Avenue at 10:35 a.m. Friday, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Wilbourn was discovered  as a family member came to check on her.

Wilborn was found dead in a pool of blood in her garage, according to family. Her 2005 light grey Lexus, purse, keys and cell phone were missing.

Her son, Alexander Outten, says his mother lived in her home some 30 years, worked long hours as an accountant and was very active in the church and community.
