An autopsy is complete and police are now confirming Pamela Kosmack death as a homicide.

Kosmack's beaten and half-naked body was discovered early Wednesday morning by a woman out walking her dog.

Police say to protect the integrity of the case, they will not be releasing details of how Kosmack's was killed.

The 39-year-old mother of two lived about two kilometres from where her body was found. Friends and family remember her as a kind, funny and intelligent woman who was recently trying to get help for a drug addiction.

The NCC bike path near Britannia Park in west Ottawa is now reopened.

Someone has planted a flower where Kosmack body was discovered and others have created a makeshift memorial.

The Major Crime Section is seeking the public's assistance in determining Kosmack's activities and contacts in the days and hours leading up to her death.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Major Crime Section at 613-236-1222 ext. 5493 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 613-233-TIPS (8477) or 1-800-222-TIPS.
