Authorities are investigating a body found behind a business off of Cedar Lake Road in St. Louis Park, and police now believe the death was the result of a crime, not an accident or suicide, the Pioneer Press reports.

The Star Tribune reports someone at Angstrom Analytical Inc. called 911 shortly before noon Tuesday to report what they thought was a body near the railroad tracks, which run behind the building along the Cedar Lake Trail.

When authorities arrived, they found a body covered by a sheet, or "wrapped in bed sheets" as KARE 11 puts it. The body was not heavily decomposed, according to media reports.

City spokesman Jamie Zwilling told the newspaper that there were no reports of suspicious activity leading up to the discovery.

Authorities have not released any information on the person's age, gender or identity.
