Sheboygan Police are investigating a suspicious death after finding the body of a 30-year-old male concealed in a crawlspace Tuesday afternoon. 

Police responded to a call Sunday that someone may have overdosed in a home on the 1300 block of Michigan Avenue. Police say when they arrived and searched the home, they initially found no victim. 

Authorities went to the residence a second time Tuesday afternoon after receiving information that the body may be hidden within the home. Upon the second search, police found the body concealed in a crawlspace in the wall. 

The victim has been identified but not yet released. 

Police say the cause of death is consistent with an overdose but an autopsy is scheduled. 

A 29-year-old woman is being held on probation in relation to the incident.
