Police are expecting to release more information about a homicide investigation in Benton Harbor.

They say they responded to a call of a missing person Sunday. A young woman was reported missing by her family and the family felt she was in danger.

Police later found her car parked at Hayward Wells Apartments. They found the missing woman dead inside.

They immediately suspected foul play.

Investigators were quickly able to identify a suspect who was located in Kalamazoo. They say the victim and the suspect had been in a relationship.

The suspect is currently being held on unrelated drug and weapons charges.

Police are not releasing any names in the case yet, until an autopsy is done on the victim.
