Myra Evadney Miller, a 68 year-old resident of Boston Village on the Maskall Road, died at the KHMH on Easter Sunday, April 20, after she was found inside her house, which showed signs of forced entry.

 On Friday, April 18, in the evening, the Village Council Chairman and his family got concerned that they had not seen Miller for at least 1 day and half, and so they went investigating. They found one of the side windows on her house which looked like it was forced open. They used that to get inside and opened the front door. Inside one of the rooms they found the elderly woman on the ground with abrasions on her face and head, and a gash on her shoulder. They immediately called in police who realized that she was still alive, and so she was rushed to the KHMH, where she fought for survival until Sunday.

 Police are waiting for the post-mortem results to know how to progress with the case. The residents are convinced that the elderly woman had an encounter with an intruder whom she struggled with. The wounds on her body and the state of her house, suggest that she was assaulted, and her attacker ransacked her house. Also, while she was still at her house, she temporarily regained consciousness and told her neighbours who found her that “the man” did this to her.
