A woman's body was found wrapped in a blanket in a wooded area of St. Paul Saturday night, and police suspect foul play was involved in her death, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

A neighborhood resident found the body in the 1400 block of Minnehaha Avenue East about 9 p.m. Saturday, according to St. Paul police spokesman Sgt. Paul Paulos.

The victim was taken to the Ramsey County medical examiner's office.

Police have not released any other information about her, and they're asking for the public's help to identify the woman or determine how she died, the Star Tribune reports.

“Investigators are actively looking into the matter to find out what happened moments before the incident took place,” police said in a statement. “They are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect(s) and victim in this incident.”

Police are also reviewing active missing persons cases to see if they could be a match to the victim, according to the Pioneer Press.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call St. Paul police at 651-266-5650.
