The Emergency Response Center was notified of a dead woman in an abandoned building on Filtri Street in Tallinn on Sunday noon.
"Reacting officers and paramedics found the dead body of a woman with signs of physical abuse, the person and age are still being investigated," said head of Northern Prefecture Vadim Kuperštein.
District Attorney Diana Helila said the procedural act is in process and evidence is still being collected.
Helila added that the sight on scene points to alcohol being consumed. The criminal proceedings will investigate what led to such a serious crime.
