Investigators are looking in to a suspicious death after an unknown woman's body was found near the side of the road in Pueblo West. Sheriff's deputies were called to a field on E. Platteville Blvd. near Winona Dr. in Pueblo West just after 2:30 Wednesday afternoon after a passing driver spotted the body.
Investigators tell us at this point the matter of death is still unknown. The woman's body didn't show any obvious signs of trauma. Investigators are still calling this a suspicious death at this point but are treating the scene as a homicide. "At this point, because it is a suspicious death, we treat every investigation as a homicide until the evidence leads us to believe something different." explains Deputy Laurie Kilpatrick with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office.
There's still no word on the identity of the woman. The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office is looking through their missing persons database as well as surrounding areas. The official cause of death will be announced after the coroner's exam which could happen Thursday or Friday.
