Milwaukee police are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found in a laundry chute at her home.

One of the victim's sisters says she hadn't heard from her in a few days so she went to check on her and that's when she found her body. Relatives identify the woman as 58-year-old Kaye Powell.

A neighbor, Monique Dickerson, told WISN-TV, she would often see Powell in her garden or with her pets. Dickerson said Powell was nice to everyone. Police said the woman's death is suspicious. Family members say investigators are looking into her death as a homicide.
