Detectives have been investigating the murder of an unidentified woman who may have been homeless.

The body of the victim was found around 7:20 a.m. Saturday in a field at Whitsett Park located at East Thompson Lane and Old Glenrose Avenue.

She was discovered by a man riding his bike through the park, and police said she had obvious signs of trauma to her body.

An autopsy will be conducted. Authorities said two homeless people who were camping nearby told officials they heard an argument between a man and a woman in the park late Friday night.
