Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- LMPD Homicide Unit detectives are investigating after a woman was found dead in a home on Phyllis Avenue near Churchill Downs.

Around 5:30 p.m., LMPD was called to perform a welfare check at an apartment on Phyllis Avenue near Churchill Downs.

Officials say they found a woman -- likely in her early to mid-20's -- in the home. They also found a toddler with her.

The victim's family had not heard from her in a while, so they called police.

"We know for certain that she suffered some sort of trauma but specifically what that trauma was we will have to wait for the coroner and the autopsy report," LMPD spokesperson Alicia Smiley said at the scene.

She added they have no suspects at this time.

It's not clear what the relationship is between the woman and the child, or how long the child may have been left alone in the house.

If you have any information, you're asked to call the anonymous LMPD tipline at 574-LMPD.
