FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Fort Wayne police are investigating the discovery of a Wisconsin woman's body inside a home last week.

The Allen County coroner's office identified the body as that of 34-year-old Jessica Fecht, a native of Portage, Wisconsin.

The Journal Gazette reports Fecht's body was found on Thursday. The coroner's office says she died at the scene, but it could take weeks before the cause of death is known.

Fecht's family last heard from her on Jan. 13. Fecht had come to Fort Wayne to meet a man she met online, according to social media postings asking for help locating her.

Mike Fecht describes his sister as a free spirit and loving person. He says she suffered a head injury in a car accident a few years ago that changed her.
