The Pulaski County sheriff’s office is investigating the death of a woman whose body was found early Wednesday as suspicious.
Waste management employees discovered the body around 5 a.m. in the 9800 block of Arch Street, Lt. Cody Burk said in a video posted to the agency’s Facebook page.
In an interview, Burk said that investigators believe the woman was in her late 30s.
The body was found in an open grassy area used for maintenance projects by the waste management company, Burk said, and investigators were looking into how the body got there.
Authorities said it didn’t appear the body had been in the area for a long time, and it was being sent to the state Crime Lab for positive identification and to determine the cause of her death.
