CLEVELAND (AP/WCMH) — Cleveland police say a group of 13- and 14-year-old boys taking a shortcut past a vacant house spotted a woman’s body inside.

Police said the home is located in the 3700 block of E. 143rd Street.

Police say the woman appears to be in her 20’s. A cause of death has not been determined.

The boys told cleveland.com they were cutting through a yard on Cleveland’s east side Saturday when one of them looked in a window and saw the body.

A Cleveland city councilman says there are about two dozen vacant homes on that street alone.
