This afternoon Sacramento County Coroner’s Office and Sacramento Police Department crime lab officials are removing the body of a woman discovered by police Thursday night in the backyard of a Natomas home, according to a police spokesperson.

Officers responding to a fight at 7:45 p.m. soon discovered the woman hidden under dirt and debris, said Doug Morse, Sacramento Police spokesman.

The unidentified woman, is believed to be the victim of a homicide, officials report.

“It was obvious that there was an attempt to conceal the body under dirt,” Morse said.

Specifically, the officers found the woman soon after separating two men who were fighting at the residence, officials said. The men are believed to related, Morse added. Police investigators reportedly took one of the men to the police department as a “person of interest” to be questioned.

The identity of the woman is not known, said Morse.

Morse said investigators hope to “have a clearer picture of what is going on” after the woman’s identity is determined.

The man taken into custody reportedly lives at the home on the 1300 block of Trail End Way with his mother, officials reported.

Police also interviewed several witnesses in the neighborhood.

“At this time, detectives believe this incident is not a random act, and they continue to actively determine the circumstances surrounding the case,” according to a police statement.
