Police say a decomposed body has been found wrapped in plastic and rolled into a carpet behind a home on Detroit's west side.

The Detroit News and WJBK-TV report the body was discovered early Monday and circumstances of the death weren't immediately known.

Detroit police Sgt. Michael Woody says the person's identity also wasn't immediately known.

The Detroit Free Press reports the body was so decomposed that investigators couldn't immediately determine the sex or age range. The body has been taken to the office of the Wayne County Medical Examiner, which says an autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
