UPDATE: Coroner identifies woman found dead on near northwest side
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – IMPD confirmed they are investigating a report of a body found on the near northwest side Wednesday night.
Just after 7 p.m. officers were sent to the 2500 block of North Harding Street after Citizens Gas workers found an unresponsive female.
