Just a day after Windsor police released the photo of a recent homicide victim, authorities now say they're looking for more information about a vehicle possibly involved with the case.

Police are seeking a dark, newer model SUV that was parked behind the apartment building where Autumn Taggart's body was found on June 10 around 8 p.m. The apartment building is located at the corner of University Avenue West and McKay Avenue. It's believed the vehicle was there from 3 a.m. to 7 a.m. earlier that same day.

Investigators also say her 9-year-old child was inside the home when it happened.

The cause of death has been listed as blunt force trauma to parts of Taggart's body. The 31-year-old woman also goes by the name of Maya Madolyn.

With hopes of engaging more people who aren't connected to social media, police will have the mobile command post stationed at the intersection of McKay Avenue and University Avenue West on Saturday and Sunday.

Authorities are asking neighbours in the area to look around their yards for items that don't normally belong there.
