FARMINGTON — Officers from the Farmington Police Department are working to identify a woman found dead Thursday morning at a park near the corner of North Allen Avenue and West Apache Street.
Detectives at the scene said the body was found at about 7:30 a.m. in U.S. West Park by a passerby, who called dispatch. Officers searched the park for evidence, including trash cans, but Detective Donovan Stearns said nothing unusual or suspicious was found.
“If we found something, we’d be out here longer,” Stearns said.
Officers left the scene at about 9:15 a.m. The body will be sent to Albuquerque to be identified and autopsied, Stearns said.
U.S. West Park is located across from Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
