GARY — The woman whose frozen body was found inside a vacant Midtown home earlier this week has been identified.

Paula Palo, 58, had been a client at Edgewater Systems for Balanced Living when she disappeared about Dec. 10, police said.

She suffered from mental illness and needed medication.

Palo’s body was found lying on the floor of a gutted two-story building shortly before 8 a.m. Wednesday. An autopsy has not been performed yet, but investigators said there was no apparent sign of trauma or foul play.
