Unidentified woman found dead along South Jersey road
The body of an unidentified woman was discovered this morning along the side of a road in South Jersey.
A passing motorist first spotted the body about 9 a.m. on Weymouth Road in Hamilton Township, said Haleigh Walz, spokeswoman for the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s office.
Details were sketchy. The prosecutor’s office did not release any information about the victim’s race, approximate age, how the body was dressed or if the death appeared to be the result of foul play.
The New Jersey Medical Examiner was conducting an autopsy this afternoon to determine the cause of death. An investigation is ongoing.
Police ask anyone who was in the area and may have seen suspicious activity to contact them at 609-625-2700 or the prosecutor’s major crimes unit at 609-909-7666.
