‘It’s crazy!’ Investigation underway after body rolled in carpet found near 12th and Burnham

MILWAUKEE -- Police are investigating after discovering what appeared to be a woman's body rolled up in carpeting. The death, which happened near 12th and Burnham, is being considered suspicious.

"It's crazy!" said Emanuel Ramos, who lives nearby.

The medical examiner was called out to the scene on Monday, April 16. It's unclear how long the woman may have been there.

Ramos said he walked out of his home to find police officers outside his door.

"There's always commotion going on around here, but never a body in the alley. Something I've never experienced before in this area," said Ramos.

Police said a neighbor walking by saw the person and called MPD. Investigators spent quite a bit of time in an alley in the area.

"Never expected something that crazy to happen in this area. You hear of shootings and domestic violence all the time. You never expect it to actually play out in your alley," said Ramos.

The investigation is ongoing.
