Yesterday afternoon, police went to the one thousand block of East Sutherland, after getting a call about a vehicle parked in the alley.
The responding officer found the body of a female inside the vehicle.
The body has been transported to the state medical examiners office in Oklahoma city to determine the cause of death.
Police say they are treating the investigation as a homicide.
They are not yet releasing the victim's name.
We talked to a man who lives near the scene.
"It was crazy. There were tons of cops over here ... They blocked off pretty much this whole side of the street. It was crazy. It's on my street -- I never thought it would happen here."
Investigators say they have several persons of interest in the case.
If you have any information, you are asked to call Altus' Crime Stoppers, at (580) 482-TIPS -- or (580) 482-8477.
