ST. CLOUD -- The St. Cloud police department has released more information about the suspicious death investigation in north St. Cloud that began at about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The Midwest Medical Examiners office conducted an autopsy and determined the victim died from a gunshot wound and that it was a homicide.

The family of the victim has identified her as 28-year-old Janesa Harris of St. Cloud.  Harris was living at the apartment where she was found.
