The manager of a self-storage facility in Gresham, Ore., last weekend discovered the decomposed body of a woman in one of the units. The manager decided to open the unit at Money Saver Mini Storage after smelling a foul odor coming from inside.
Examiners identified the woman as Anisa Marie Swearingen, 18, of Portland, using the tattoos of musical notes and the name "Shiloh" on her body to make a positive ID. She had been reported missing since July 18. The cause of death remains under investigation.
Swearingen reportedly struggled with drug addiction and faced charges of meth possession. She also faced charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and tampering with evidence, according to the website Gather. Police said her criminal history could hinder their investigation.
Police did not report any suspects and asked anyone with information regarding the case to call the Gresham Police Tip Line at 503.618.2719.
