UPDATED STORY:

EAST CLEVELAND– A man has been arrested following a standoff Friday afternoon on East 197th Street and Chickasaw Avenue in Cleveland.

East Cleveland police identified the suspect as 35-year-old Michael Madison. They said he was arrested in connection with a woman’s body found in East Cleveland.

A cableman called police Friday morning complaining about a foul odor coming from the area of Hayden Avenue near the intersection of Shaw Friday morning before 11 a.m.

“I went to get my tools in the garage and the smell next to mine was so bad. I called police and they went in and found a plastic bag,” said the man who did not want to be identified.

The garage sits behind an apartment complex on Shaw Avenue.

Neighbors complained about the smell for about a week.

“The garage was locked so entry was forced. Inside, we did recover a body,” said Detective Sgt. Scott Gardner, with the East Cleveland Police Department.

The Medical Examiner’s Office has not released the victim’s identification. An autopsy is scheduled to be performed.

“We did issue a search warrant of one of the apartments. We have information relative to a suspect,” added Detective Sgt. Gardner.
