Canadian homicide victim, Nicole Dempster, died as a result of injury to the head, according to a post mortem examination report issued Tuesday.

Police quote the report as saying that the 34-year old died as a result of ‘Cerebral oedema, secondary to right subdural hematoma due to blunt force trauma to the head.’

Cerebral edema occurs when fluid builds up around the brain, causing an increase in pressure known as intracranial pressure.

A subdural hematoma is is a collection of blood outside the brain.

She was pronounced dead at the scene by a medical examiner.

On Monday night, Police arrested a male suspect at Bexon.

They disclosed that the suspect was known to Dempster.

He cannot be named until charges are laid.
