MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Police are investigating the discovery of a woman's body found in the trunk of a car at an impound lot near the Minneapolis Farmers Market.

The gold Lexus had been in the Wrecker Services lot, located at Lyndale Ave. and Glenwood Ave., since April 11.

According to the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office, an odor prompted employees of Wrecker Services to open the trunk of the Lexus in which the body was discovered.

The car was registered to a St. Paul woman, but St. Paul police said they have no missing person case with her name.

The car had been towed from a location in Brooklyn Park, Minn., to the Minneapolis lot. Brooklyn Park police are now involved in the investigation. The death is being investigated as a possible homicide.
