Woman's Michigan Ave. death investigated as homicide
September 7, 2007 (WLS) -- A 52-year-old mother of two was found dead at her Chicago home Friday. Police call her death a homicide.
Rona Armand lived alone in an apartment in a complex at 3812 S. Michigan
Armand's daughter said she hadn't spoken to her mother in a few days, and her messages had not been returned. So she went to the apartment, found the door unlocked and her mother's body inside.
"We don't understand," said daughter Naima Armand. "She never bothered anybody. Everybody in the building always said she was so quiet. Why did this happen? I don't know."
"She was always meek," said Vanessa Samuel, victim's friend. "She was always humble. She would not hurt anybody. She was a child of God."
Rona Armand is also survived by a son who lives out of state.
