(STOW)--Police are investigating as a homicide the death of woman whose body was found wrapped in blankets in a backyard shed.

The name of the woman was not released pending notification of her family.

Stow police were dispatched to the house on Maplepark Road after the woman's mother called police to say she hadn't seen her daughter in two days and needed to know she was okay.

Officers surveying the property saw a hand protruding from a pile of blankets in the shed and found the woman wrapped inside. She was unresponsive and declared dead at the scene.
