LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A woman found dead at a home in an Okolona neighborhood has a lot of people in the area concerned about what happened.

Louisville Metro Police have been focusing on a house in the 8000 block of Judge Boulevard, just south of Outer Loop since 9:30 a.m., but they aren't releasing much about what happened. Dwight Mitchell, a LMPD spokesperson, said the body was found in a position that makes them unable to figure out how she died. Neighbors tell us she was in a trashcan.

When Cathy Hall came home from the grocery store, police tape surrounding her street is the last thing she expected to find.

"This is the first time I've ever heard of anything like this going on," said Hall.

From the backyard of the home police had surrounded by tape, you could see a tent police set up over a green trash bin.

"If that's the house I'm thinking of, it's a young girl (who lives there). She's usually walking her child around in a stroller all the time or she's out walking herself," Hall said.

Other neighbors said that woman was living in the home with her grandmother who had kicked her out a few weeks ago. They also say that granddaughter had a boyfriend who lived nearby. Police confirm they were in this area Sunday.

"We're looking at some records," said Mitchell. "I believe (Sunday) they may have been in the area yesterday, but to no avail was there anything."

Mitchell wouldn't say if police were at the house they are now investigating.

Police said they were talking to a person, but wouldn't say if it was just a witness or a person of interest.
