The woman had no identification on her, but she does have several tattoos, including the word "Princess" on the back of her neck.
Additional tattoos include the number "4" on her right hand, the name "Ne-Ne" on her right foot, a skull and bones on the back of her left ankle, and the words "Love and Pain" across her chest.
Officers are not saying how she died.
