Chicago police are conducting a death investigation after a 51-year-old woman reportedly died while “wrestling” with a 28-year-old man in an Uptown apartment on Saturday morning. The man is in police custody and charges are pending, according to a CPD spokesperson.
Officers responded to a fifth floor apartment on the 900 block of West Carmen at 11:27 a.m. after a 911 caller reported that the woman was unresponsive and appeared dead.
