DETROIT — A woman’s body has been found following a fire in a west side Detroit apartment.
WDIV-TV reports that maintenance workers noticed the body today while cleaning the apartment after firefighters put out a small fire earlier in the unit.
Police are investigating if the death is connected to two brutal attacks last week.
A 37-year-old woman was found unclothed about 5:50 a.m. on July 26 in a west side field. She had been physically assaulted and had burn marks on her body.
The following day another woman was found unclothed and unresponsive in a field two miles away. She had been physically assaulted and possibly sexually assaulted.
Both of those victims survived the attacks.
