Detroit police say a caller found a body in the back of a vacant house in the 20400 block of Hawthorne, which is just southeast of the 8 Mile and I-75 interchange.

Officials say they don't know how long the body has been in the house and cannot identify the victim at this time.

A caller told FOX 2 the body was wrapped in a rug or carpet. Detroit police did not confirm that information.
