PARMA, Ohio (WOIO) - Police are investigating after a body was found wrapped in plastic in the basement of a home Wednesday morning.

According to Parma police, officers responded to the home on W. 26th Street for a domestic violence complaint.

Several neighbors told 19 News that’s not uncommon for the married couple.

At least three neighbors said the police are at the couple’s home at least once a month, including reports of seeing the 40-year-old man and 31-year-old woman physically abusing each other in the middle of the street.

Officers said they took a man into custody and EMS transported a woman to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The names of the couple are not being released at this time.

Later that morning, a family member went to the home to retrieve some weapons and discovered the body, said police. Officers added it appears the victim had been deceased for some time.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has not determined the cause of death and the victim’s identity.

Parma police said this is an ongoing investigation.
