St. Paul police say they are investigating after the body of a woman was found in a wooded area near Minnehaha Avenue.

Police say they responded to the woods after they got a call around 9 p.m. Saturday about a possible dead baby in the area.

Police say they arrived to find an adult woman's body wrapped in a blanket. Police believe the death is suspicious.

The Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office is working to confirm the person's identity. Investigators are looking into whether the body matches any active missing person cases.

Police are seeking the public's help as they try to find out what happened and locate a suspect.
