Woman found murdered along trail in Joliet
May 28, 2007 (JOLIET, IL) (WLS) -- Police in southwest suburban Chicago are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found along a horse trail in a park Monday.
Authorities say the death is being investigated as a homicide.
Joliet Police Officer Amy Chochola says the body was found at U.S. Route Six and Farrell Road in Joliet.
She declined to give further information.
The Will County Coroner's office says the woman's body was found near a horse trail at a park.
An autopsy will be conducted Tuesday.
The name of the woman is being withheld pending positive identification through finger prints and DNA and the notification of family.
Residents of a near-by apartment complex told ABC7 News police asked them whether they saw flames, smelled anything burning, or heard any screams for help.
A police dog apparently led officials to a dumpster where they recovered a jacket and pants that may have belonged to the victim.
