HOUSTON—Houston police are investigating after a woman’s charred body was discovered Friday behind a laundromat in northeast Houston.

Police received a 911 reporting a fire burning in the 1300 block of Lorraine Street around 6:40 a.m.

Houston firefighters initially thought it was just a pile of rubbish on fire.  When they put out the blaze, they discovered the woman’s remains.

Arson investigators and K-9 units were then called out.

The woman’s identity was not known.

Police said it appears that she was killed somewhere else, then brought to that location and set afire.
