Three adults and a child were in the home when police arrived. Police entered a bedroom and found the body.

Police said the body is female.

The people inside the house were taken to the police station for questioning. There was no immediate word if the people in the house were family members, but neighbors said several unrelated people rented rooms in the five-bedroom house.

"I'm surprised, I mean, there was no noise, no parties, nothing out of the way. You just see people come and go. I thought they were working people," said one neighbor.

"They're going to treat this as a homicide until otherwise determined," Gonzalez said.
