On Friday, her death was announced as an apparent homicide, but Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan says an autopsy has ruled the death as a homicide by multiple sharp force injuries.

"This is not believed to be random incident," Ryan's office said in a statement on Saturday.

An investigation into the homicide is still ongoing. As of Saturday night, no arrests have been made.
