Police are withholding the woman’s identity pending notification of next of kin. They also did not explain the relationship between her and the man who called 911.

"Right now they are investigating what has happened,” Holland told Channel 2. “They're talking to any type of witnesses, neighbors, people that live in this neighborhood, to find out what they can. They're also talking to the person that made the 911 call." 

Police at the scene said they’re treating the incident as a homicide investigation. (
