DETROIT (WXYZ) — A body of a woman was found inside a vacant house Wednesday morning on Detroit’s east side.

Detectives on scene tell 7 Action News the body of a nude black woman was found badly decomposed inside a vacant house on Mack near Mt. Elliot. They say because of the decomposition, it’s impossible to tell how old the woman is or identify her by name.

The decomposition also made it impossible for detectives to tell exactly how she died. There were no obvious signs of foul play, but it remains under investigation.

The woman was taken to the medical examiners office to see if she can be identified.
