A woman who had struggles with her body was found dead in a Brooklyn home early on Saturday, according to the police.

The police received a call at around 5 a.m. for a woman who was unconscious and not breathing inside a home at 175 Minna St. in Kensington.

The victim, a 27-year-old woman who has not been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Neighbors said the woman had been staying in the apartment on the first floor with two men for a few days.

A 31-year-old female neighbor said detectives told her that the victim was originally from the Bronx and had planned to stay in a homeless shelter. However, the two men offered her a place to stay to avoid living with drug addicts.

Another neighbor, citing the police, said one of the men called 911, but both were home at the time.

A bartender and father-of-two who lived on the same floor as the men said he had never seen the woman before. He was not home when the police arrived.

He and another neighbor said they knew both men, but one was friendlier than the other.

However, a 31-year-old female neighbor across the street disagreed. She said she felt uncomfortable around the men, describing them as a tall Hispanic man and a heavyset dark-skinned man. She said the dark-skinned man had harassed her before.

The two men moved into the home last year and spent a lot of time working on motorcycles and cars, which the neighbor suspected were stolen.

She said she always found them suspicious and creepy, especially the dark-skinned man, whom she believed was capable of kidnapping someone.

The cause of the woman’s death will be determined by the city Medical Examiner’s office.
