CUDAHY, Wis. — Relatives and neighbors say a woman whose body was found wrapped in a blanket in a suburban Milwaukee apartment had not been seen or heard from in three months.

They believe the body is that of the 50-year-old woman who lived in the Cudahy (CUD'-ah-hay) apartment, although authorities haven't yet identified the person or the cause of death.

WISN-TV ( ) reports police have taken the woman's boyfriend into custody on a probation hold.

Police executed a search warrant at the apartment last week after neighbors reported a foul smell and the landlord said the woman hadn't paid rent in a couple months.

The woman's father says he and his grandson gave police DNA samples to help make a positive identification.
