INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police are investigating a body found shortly after noon Tuesday in a residential area on the city’s northeast side and sources believe it could be connected to the case of a missing woman from 2016.

Aaron Hamer, an IMPD spokesman, said the body was found in some brush in the 5300 block of East 43rd Street.

IMPD sources said a tip was called in that Barlow’s body may be in the brush at this location. When detectives arrived, a body was found.

“We’re not sure who called it in,” Hamer said, noting investigators are trying to determine what occurred.

The sex and identify of the body was not immediately known, Hamer said.

24-Hour News 8 reached out to Barlow’s mother following the news.

“We don’t know much at this time. Only that police were conducting a search based on a tip,” she said.

24-Hour News 8 has reached out to the Marion County Coroner’s Office for confirmation.
