Metro police found the body of a black female in an abandoned north Nashville home early Monday morning after they received an anonymous tip to check the house.

The woman’s body was discovered just after 4:30 a.m. at 1817 15th Ave. N. Reports indicate the woman suffered blunt force trauma to the back of the head. Police say they have classified the death as a homicide.

Police have not released the woman’s identity, and they have no suspects.

Neighbors said the house, most recently used as rental property, has been vacant for some time.

Did this crime occur within one mile of the alley Councilman Baker wishes
to close? If so, please let him know so he can add it to his reasoning!
