The woman found dead inside a Public Storage Facility in Colorado Springs has been identified as 30-year-old Julie Tureson.

El Paso County deputies were following up on a report of a missing person when they went to the storage facility on East Platte Avenue on Friday, April 22.

Deputies found her body in a minivan inside one of the units, officials confirmed.

The death is being investigated as a homicide.

"We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Julie," the sheriff's office said in a press release Monday.

Investigators are questioning a person of interest in the case.
