Clearwater Police Investigate Death Of Woman

Clearwater Police detectives are investigating the circumstances of the death of a woman whose body was discovered late this afternoon.

Police were called after a passer-by found the body shortly after 4:30 p.m. in a grassy ditch west of the Pinellas Trail and north of Fairmont Street.

The case has been labeled a suspicious death.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office forensic team and the Pinellas County Medical Examiner's Office were on the scene to assist in the investigation.

An autopsy will determine the cause of death. Detectives could not ascertain the age or race of the victim due to decomposition.

No further information will be released until the autopsy is completed.
