A Queens woman found dead in a tub last year with prescription medications “all over the place” in the bathroom did not die of an overdose — and had suffered a neck injury, according to sources, who are probing the case as a homicide.
Cindy Boyle, 45, was discovered unconscious just after midnight on September 13 inside her Jamaica home on 86th Drive.
She was rushed to Jamaica Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead, according to police, who said at the time said she had internal injuries to her neck.
On Wednesday, Boyle’s death was classified a homicide, when a toxicologist determined there were no medications in her body when she died, the source said.
Police also determined the woman’s injuries were likely not self-inflicted, as they had originally believed.
There is no known motive for the victim’s death at this time. No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
Neighbor Lateesha Smith said she was “horrified” to learn Boyle’s death was deemed a murder.
“I wish I knew,” the correction officer said. “She lived alone. No boyfriends, no husband…She was a nice lady.”
