Authorities say the woman found dead in a Minneapolis alley last week had been shot in the head.
Tiffany Monique Walker died around 7:10 a.m. on Aug. 11 from "multiple gunshot wounds" to the head, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner said, describing her death as a homicide.
Minneapolis police had said the 29-year-old was found in the alley on the 3600 block of Knox Avenue North with "obvious trauma." The exact circumstances of the shooting remain unclear, with the medical examiner saying it isn't yet known where the shooting occurred.
On Saturday, New Black Panther Nation Minnesota held a press conference and said Walker was "thrown out of her vehicle," dropped in the alley and left for dead.
"The only type of person that would do this is an evil individual," said the group's organizer.
Walker's mother, Lorraine Wilson, while standing at the site where her daughter's body was discovered, said she wanted to tell the community it's "too much."
"To see our children just murdered, and then mine left in the alley like a dog, like nobody loved her ... Nobody deserves to get treated like that and left in the alley like garbage," she said.
She described Walker as carefree, and somebody everyone loved.
The Minneapolis Police Department told Bring Me The News Monday the case remains an open, active investigation, and that there are no public updates at this point.
