PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police are investigating a suspicious death of a woman in a Southwest Portland apartment.

The Oregonian reports officers were called to the home just before 10 p.m. Tuesday. Sgt. Pete Simpson didn't release any details about who called police or how the woman may have died. But what officers found prompted them to call homicide detectives and forensic evidence specialists.

They taped off the apartment building with crime tape and worked through the night investigating her death, which Simpson is calling suspicious. State medical examiners will conduct an autopsy on the body Wednesday.

Simpson said no more details will be released until after the autopsy is performed.
