Police responded to the 1800 block of 29th St. Saturday afternoon for a report of a body wrapped in a tarp. Detective Kevin Brown, a city police spokesman, said a relative found the body in the basement and called police.
Brown said the victim, Karen Ferrell, had been reported missing Dec. 15. A cause of death had not been confirmed pending an autopsy, and no suspects or motives were available.
Ferrell lived in the Coldstream-Homestead-Montebello neighborhood of Northeast Baltimore. According to her Facebook page, she was a graduate of Baltimore City College and Morgan State University.
