Police ID woman shot to death in her Oakville apartment

Halton Regional Police have ruled the death of a 56-year-old woman fatally shot inside her Oakville apartment building last week a homicide. 

The victim, Angela Skorulski, was found dead at 205 Lakeshore Rd. W. on March 8, police say. 

Officers said at that time that they considered the woman's death suspicious.  

Homicide detectives are not releasing any further information about the victim or the investigation, media relations officer Const. David Ellsworth said Thursday. 

No details about a suspect

When asked if the attacker posed any risk to public safety or whether police had identified a suspect, Ellsworth said that the homicide squad had not provided any of those details. Nor could he say whether the victim knew her attacker. 

"They're not giving us anything," he said of the investigating officers. "I think the investigators are trying to keep their cards close to their chest on this one."

While a media release said that Skorulski's family requested privacy following her death, Ellsworth would not say whether she was married, divorced or had an intimate partner. He would also not say whether Skorulski had any children.
