Police are calling the situation a homicide investigation.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police are investigating the death of a woman found in a unit at Douglas Park Apartments.
According to LMPD, the female victim was discovered around 4:30 a.m. Sunday inside of the apartment, not far from the Louisville Airport.
The case was quickly labeled a homicide. Investigators say the victim’s death was the result of “obvious foul play”.
“I didn’t expect this kind of thing to happen,” described Fathi Aden, who has lived in the complex for about six years. “A friend of mine texted me and said ‘have you heard a lady died in Douglas Park? I’m like ‘what?’”
Aden describes the neighborhood as fairly quiet.
“Murdered? I was surprised,” Aden said. “Now I’m questioning myself, whether this place is safe or not.”
Several neighbors say they didn’t know much about the victim.
“I’d seen her a couple times, I don’t know her,” said neighbor, Ivanka Vrbac. “I see police this morning, but it’s not my business… but I see something strange. Very scared… People lost mind, lost control.”
Investigators have not released her name or how she died. Police simply describe her as a “middle eastern woman”.
No arrests have been made.
