Woman's body found following Detroit apartment fire; police probe links to earlier attacks

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.
