SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Northern Indiana police are investigating the death of a 25-year-old woman whose body was found inside a South Bend bar hours after she attended a Christmas party there.

St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Commander Tim Corbett tells WBST-TV that the owners of Chuck’s Tavern found the woman’s body inside the bar Sunday afternoon.

Corbett says the woman died at the bar following a Saturday night Christmas party held at that tavern for a local business.
