A woman was found dead Thursday morning after an apparent domestic incident in the Northwest Side Portage Park neighborhood.

Officers found the woman unresponsive in the street in the 4800 block of North Moody Avenue about 5 a.m., authorities said.

The 39-year-old woman had suffered “visible trauma” and police believe she may have been beaten to death in a domestic incident.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed the woman’s death, but her name was not released Thursday morning.

No one is in custody as Area North detectives investigate.
