The 63-year-old woman was found dead in her Weymouth North home Sept. 1.
The RCMP issued a press release Sept.3 to say the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy Sept. 2 and determined that Comeau’s death was a homicide.
RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Dal Hutchinson says the RCMP do not have anyone in custody but couldn't say whether the police have any suspects. He was also not in a position to disclose any more information about the cause of death.
"As a result of the autopsy, we can say this was a homicide but we can't say any more at this point," said Hutchinson to the Courier by phone.
The RCMP are still on scene in Weymouth North. The major crimes unit is leading the investigation with help from the forensic identification unit, the RCMP dog service and the Digby detachment.
