A memorial erected by friends of the sixth-grade girl on June 1.
Not much was known about the victim investigators found when they responded to a call for a pediatric injury Tuesday night, but late Wednesday afternoon Officer Amy Daum gave out her name.
She's now been identified as Jessica Nguyen. The medical examiner has ruled the death a homicide.
Although police say the autopsy revealed trauma to Nguyen's upper body, they wouldn't say what kind of trauma was found. Also, there's still no indication about whether anyone else was present in the home when investigators arrived.
Police were also very careful not to reveal any potential suspects, or rule out the possibility of a random crime, but indicated they continue to question friends and family members.
Nguyen was a sixth-grader at Gaithersburg Middle School.
