The body of a woman found in a Charles Village apartment Saturday was so decomposed that police have been unable to confirm an identity or determine whether there was foul play involved, Baltimore police said Sunday.
According to Detective Donny Moses, a police spokesman, the body was found Saturday afternoon at 123 W. 29th St., on the edge of the Charles Village neighborhood just south of the Johns Hopkins University campus.
That address is for the Wyman House, a mixed-income building of 168 efficiency and one-bedroom apartments that is owned by the Housing Authority of Baltimore City.
Police did not know the age of the woman, and the body was so decomposed, it was "too soon to suspect anything," Moses said.
Moses said he did not know how police were alerted to the body.
Moses said that without knowing the woman's identity, he did not know whether the woman was found in her own apartment or someone else's.
More information, including a cause of death, will come only after the release of a pending autopsy report, which will be Monday at the earliest, Moses said.
