(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The death of a St. Joseph woman is under investigation after police were called to a home Monday night.

Capt. Jeff Wilson said emergency medical responders called authorities after they discovered the body of 21-year-old Rachelle Amber Britzman at the home in the 900 block of S. 26th Street shortly after 10:30 p.m.

Wilson said he did not know who called for an ambulance, but he did believe the woman was the only one at the residence.

Detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding Britzman's death. An autopsy has been scheduled.

"It's just kind of routine when it's someone this young," said Capt. Wilson.

Wilson said at this point, they are not sure if any crime was committed as the investigation continues.
