Chicago Police conduct a death investigation after finding a body while extinguishing a dumpster fire Sunday night in the 3100 block of North Kimball Avenue.

Chicago police are asking for the public's help to identify a young woman or girl found dead and badly burned in a garbage bin.

Police say they believe the woman is between the ages of 17 and 30 with medium-length brown hair. The Chicago Fire Department found her body late Sunday after they extinguished a fire in an alley garbage bin shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday in the 3100 block of North Kimball Avenue.

Police say the woman is 5-feet 3-inches tall and weighed 120 pounds. She was wearing a blue shirt and pink bra.

Investigators aren't sure if the woman died in the fire or if the fire was set after her body was placed inside.
