Police are investigating a homicide after a woman’s body was found in a house’s garage in East Boston Wednesday.

Police are calling her death “suspicious.”

The body was found on Princeton Street at around 8:30 a.m. at a home under construction. According to police, the woman is in her late teens or early 20s and has not yet been identified.
