The Cook Co. medical examiner was working Sunday to identify a body found under a stairwell on Chicago's Northwest Side. The body was found Saturday morning in the 1400-block of North Milwaukee. Police say it had decomposed and was wrapped in a plastic tarp and duct tape.

Authorities say they are not sure if the victim was female or male.

An autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause of death.
