GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Police are investigating a possible homicide after the body of a woman was found early Saturday morning.

Police told FOX 17 the body was found at a Grand Rapids Community College parking ramp at 143 Bostwick Ave. NE just after 2:45 a.m.

Police said the caller told dispatchers they saw a man dragging a body between two buildings on campus. When officers arrived they found blood and the body of a woman between the ages of 30 and 40 years old.

Investigators say they do not have a suspect in custody.  Police are looking for a black man, described as 6 feet tall, who either has short hair or is bald. He is likely between 20 and 30 years old and was last seen wearing a white shirt and dark pants.   A K-9 unit was unable to track the suspect.

Police say, as of now, they can't confirm how the woman died.

GRCC sent a notification to all staff and students about the incident, but the college wasn't open when the body was found, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Grand Rapids Police or Silent Observer.
