Sioux City Police are investigating the death of a person whose body was found about 4am Tuesday in an apartment at 2601 Douglas St.
Investigators say the victim appeared to have been deceased for a week and also appeared to have signs of blunt force trauma.
Detectives are investigating the death as a homicide and are waiting for an examination by the medical examiner to determine a cause of death.
The apartment where the body was found appears to have been used by transients as a flop house.
