Baltimore Police spokesman T.J. Smith said Chadwick, the mother of a 4-year-old, sustained trauma to her body, and police believe she was murdered inside her Parkside Gardens apartment. 

"Then the killer committed the equally disgusting act of discarding her body in wooded and rugged terrain," Smith said. 

On Thursday night, police found a body inside Daisy Park near North Hilton Street and Monastery Avenue.

Police said tips about Chadwick led them to the body in Daisy Park. 

Police said Friday they searched Chadwick's apt and found evidence that a murder was committed.
