KCPD: Woman's body found in playground at apartment complex in Kansas City, Mo.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A homicide investigation is underway after a woman’s body was found on a playground outside a Kansas City apartment complex.

Someone called police around 8 a.m. Wednesday after they found the body at the Maple Hills Apartment Complex, 7000 Crabapple Lane, just off of Eastwood Trafficway between Interstate 435 and Blue Parkway.

They found the victim under the equipment behind the complex.

Authorities said she appears to have suffered blunt force trauma to the head.

It was not clear if she lived at the complex.

"I have no idea any more ideas of how she got there or how it happened," Tye Grant, with the Kansas City Police Department, said. "She has visible head trauma and it definitely looks suspicious, but at this time we are not releasing any more details."

Officers are trying to determine if the woman's death occurred on the property, or if she was moved there later.
