Woman found dead in the street in SW Detroit

- A woman's body was found face down in the street, left for dead at Campbell and Anthon in Detroit.

She was discovered just before 4 a.m. Wednesday in southwest Detroit. Police say she was wearing black pants and a black jacket - but don't know who she is or how she died.

Investigators say she may have been dumped there. A fanny pack and wallet found less than a block away from the body.

Neighbor Robert Smith is wondering what happened. He recalled that in August - another woman's body was found nearby at Fort and Junction. That woman was run over, the victim of a hit and run driver.

But Wednesday the investigation is focused on Anthon and Campbell - where crime scene technicians are taking measurements, taking photos, and taking evidence off the street - in this case a cigarette butt - it could be something - or nothing at all related to this crime.

Investigators say it was covered up by snow.

Neighbors hope police find out who the victim is and who's responsible for her death.

Anyone with information call Detroit police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
