CHICAGO (AP) _ The body of a woman was found buried in concrete in the basement of an apartment building, police said today.

The body was wrapped in plastic, said Officer Michael Charnota.

The owner of the building called police about the concrete late Sunday, Charnota said.

″There was a fresh patch of cement,″ Charnota said. ″They broke the concrete″ and found the body, which was taken to the Cook County Morgue.

The woman may have been dead three or four weeks, officials said.

Police did not have an identity for the woman, and Charnota said he did not know if there were any suspects in her death.
