An autopsy is underway after a woman's body was found in northeast Houston.

Police were called out to the 8500 block of Tate Street Monday afternoon after someone driving by spotted an arm sticking out of a blanket.    When investigators arrived, they found a body wrapped inside.

Detectives say there are no visible signs of any trauma, but they are still investigating this case as a possible homicide.

They hope an autopsy will help them identify the woman and give them clues as to how she died.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600.
