CANARSIE -

Authorities say the 70-year-old Canarsie woman whose body was discovered inside her apartment Monday was strangled.

They had previously not announced whether Noreen Mulzac had died of natural causes or foul play.

But a report from the medical examiner's office has since deemed the death a homicide by means of ligature strangulation.

Sources say she was found bound with a "scarf-like" object in her second-floor Flatlands Third Street bedroom. Police earlier said she may have been there for several days.

Neighbors say Mulzac was originally from Trinidad and was a nurse.
