JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Investigators say they believe a woman found dead after a fire above a Jacksonville bar was the victim of a homicide.
    
On Dec. 1, firefighters found the body of 43-year-old Kathy Lorraine Johnson in a room she was renting above Greybeard's Tavern.
    
Jacksonville's Assistant Police Chief Chris Butler told the Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/1e80hq ) Monday that investigators didn't original suspect foul play. But the medical examiner ruled Johnson's death a homicide.
    
Officials didn't say how she died.
    
Johnson had lived in the boarding room for about two months.
