INDIANAPOLIS, IN (WAVE) - A dark and disturbing scene in Chicago: the body of a pregnant Indiana woman, found beaten and stuffed inside a plastic box. Cynthia Funches, 26 of Highland, Indiana was five months pregnant.

The mystery began at Funches' apartment, where loved ones asked police to check on her when she wouldn't respond to phone calls.

Funches was looking forward to being a first time mom.

"Church-going, very intelligent, a smart young lady," described Tequila Terrell, a friend of the victim.

Police found her body in a vacant garage Wednesday afternoon. Detectives are still trying to find out who committed the act.
