Haz mat crews called after body found


RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- Hazardous materials handlers were called to a Racine apartment after police found the body of a woman.

Authorities say the death of the woman is suspicious, but won't say how she died.

The Racine Fire Department's hazardous materials team was called to the scene. WTMJ-TV reports crews in hazmat suits could be seen carrying out materials sometimes used to make drugs.

At least one apartment unit was temporarily evacuated because of the hazardous material. That family spent the night with relatives.

The woman's body was taken to the Waukesha County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.
