A mother, investigating a peculiar “gas smell” in her son’s room, discovered a woman’s body wrapped in plastic this past Sunday, as reported by Fox News.

According to the report, Hannah Rachel Collins, of Richland, MS, recently marked her 30th birthday on Aug. 1 and had been staying with friends in L.A. since June. She was set to return home later this month and last spoke to her family on Aug. 7.

The name of the 26-year-old man, where she was discovered, is yet to be revealed. Authorities have not provided insights into the nature of their relationship or how she ended up at that place.

LAPD Homicide Detective Ryan Rabbett mentioned that they are treating the case as an “Undetermined Death Investigation” until a thorough autopsy and toxicology report is available. While the Los Angeles Medical Examiner’s office finished the autopsy early on, the conclusive cause of death could take “four to six months” due to additional investigative steps and toxicology tests sought by the detectives.

Collins’ mother, who wished to remain unnamed, shared her pain and astonishment with Fox News Digital. She questioned why the identity of the 26-year-old is kept secret and expressed concerns about potential hold-ups in announcing the death. “My daughter was killed – it’s a homicide,” she emphasized.

Hannah Rachel Collins’ mother described her as a gentle and helpful person brought up in the church. She studied radiology at Holmes Community College and worked at a Smoothie King branch.
