Suspect left woman’s body in Chicago Loop

Police in Kenosha have been questioning a man in connection with the death of a woman whose body was found in a car trunk in the Chicago Loop over the weekend. The victim has been identified as 30-year-old Erin Ziemendorf of West Allis. Her body was discovered at 6:30 p.m. Sunday in the trunk of a car parked next to the Greyhound bus station below the Eisenhower Expressway.

An autopsy conducted Monday by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office found Ziemendorf died from blunt neck trauma and that her death was a homicide. On Sunday, a man walked into the Kenosha police department and reportedly told officers that he and Ziemendorf had a fight, and that she was dead. He said he left her body in the trunk of a car at the bas station and then took a train back to Kenosha to turn himself in. The man is said he was Ziemendorf’s boyfriend.
