Toddler found safe while police investigate woman's death

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Metro police say they found a toddler safe in a home where a dead body was discovered.

Alicia Smiley, a spokeswoman for the Louisville Metro Police Department, said officers were performing a welfare check when they discovered the body of a woman in her early-to-mid 20s with unspecified trauma. Police said the toddler was OK.

Family members asked police to check on the woman because they had not heard from her in a while. Her body was found in her apartment in the 1500 block of Phyllis Avenue.

Police do not have any suspects. Detectives from the homicide unit are investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to the crime tip hotline at 574-LMPD (5673).
