A woman who recently became homeless is the victim of Wichita's latest homicide, police said today.
Police identified the woman as Janice Sanders, 44.
Sanders' nude body was found near Lincoln and Washington Saturday afternoon. A person searching for recyclables found the body in an alley that separates a vacant home and an auto shop.
An autopsy is scheduled, but investigators believe Sanders was beaten to death.
Police said Sanders was evicted recently and had been homeless for a few weeks.
