Death of woman found in laundry chute investigated


MILWAUKEE (AP) – 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, tells WISN-TV ( ), she would often see Powell in her garden or with her pets. Dickerson says Powell was nice to everyone. Police say the woman’s death is suspicious. Family members say investigators are looking into her death as a homicide.
