GREECE, N.Y. (WROC) — Greece police released new information Wednesday about an investigation on West Parkway, now being looked into as a homicide.

Investigators say Ottilia Piros, 36, was found dead in her home Tuesday by officers responding to a welfare check. They say Piros had been shot in the head.

Police believe it happened sometime on Monday.

Officers were called to the home by a mother who said she had not heard from her daughter in 2 days.

“Upon arrival, they were met with the family member, spoke to then and upon entering the house found the female deceased on the floor of the kitchen,” Greece Police Chief Drew Forsythe said.

“Ottilia was a beloved family member and friend to many in this community,” Forsythe continued, “who are now grieving this violent and senseless tragedy.”

The investigation is ongoing and officials believe it is an isolated incident and there is no threat to the community. 

“The first word when I see her face is smiley,” said Ashley Tatum, a friend of Piros’.

Tatum went to Greece Arcadia High School with Piros, and told News 8 the two had known each other for twenty years.

“She was just so happy and outgoing, and just a bubbly person. Everybody loved her.”
