LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Lee County deputies are working to identify a body found on the side of I-75, near the Colonial Boulevard exit on Tuesday. Deputies were still on scene early this morning.
WINK News was on the scene just moments after that body was discovered. Our reporters say the victim appeared to be a woman, but deputies are not confirming that just yet.
It all happened just after noon yesterday, when a Florida Department of Transportation mowing crew found the body and called authorities.
WINK News was there even before medical examiners and crime scene technicians covered the body.
It appeared to be a young woman, partially clothed, found about 20 feet off the side of the road.
The area is still taped off, but as of now, deputies have not yet released an identity.
Count on WINK News to bring you the latest as it becomes available.
