A woman found dead in her Roxbury apartment Saturday morning was identified yesterday by her mother as 61-year-old Gail Miles of 8 Wardman Rd. Miles, who was retired, in 1984 became the first black police officer hired in Watertown. Boston Police declined to confirm the victim’s identity. Police said that they were awaiting an autopsy to determine the cause of death. Homicide detectives were investigating, though the case had not been ruled a homicide as of last night.
