Woman’s body found wrapped in plastic in LA home

Authorities have identified the woman whose body was discovered wrapped in plastic in a man’s room in South Los Angeles. The victim, Hannah Rachel Collins, had recently relocated to Los Angeles from Mississippi. Collins typically maintained regular contact with her family since her move. She was last heard from on August 7th before her disappearance. The suspect responsible for her death is described as a 26-year-old Hispanic man.

The unsettling incident unfolded in the early hours of Sunday when the suspect’s mother entered his bedroom after detecting a strong gas odor. To her horror, she stumbled upon Collins’ lifeless body wrapped in plastic. Immediately, she called for paramedics to assist at her South Central LA residence. Despite their efforts, Collins was pronounced dead upon their arrival. The exact time and cause of her death have yet to be disclosed by the LA County coroner.

At the time of the discovery, the suspect’s whereabouts were unknown. The relationship between Collins and the suspect, as well as the duration of her presence in his room, remain unclear. A family member confirmed that Collins was found inside the South LA home. The LAPD has initiated a homicide investigation, but officials have refrained from providing further information.

Collins’ Facebook profile reveals that she was from Richland, Mississippi, and had previously resided in Jackson. In a 2015 post, she announced her engagement, though the identity of her fiancé was not disclosed. Collins also mentioned her studies in radiology at Holmes Community College and her employment at a Smoothie King store.

As the investigation unfolds, authorities are working diligently to uncover the circumstances surrounding her demise and locate the suspect.
