Police are ac­tively in­ves­ti­gat­ing a death after the body of a woman was dis­cov­ered by a pass­ing cit­i­zen in a wooded area in Wal­dorf on Tues­day af­ter­noon. Au­thor­i­ties say the body was found in an ad­vanced stage of de­com­po­si­tion with no ob­vi­ous signs of foul play.

Around 3 p.m., Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice deputies were dis­patched to a wooded area in the 3300 block of West­ern Park­way. The woman, who was clothed, was found about 50 yards into the woods, ac­cord­ing to police.

There are home­less peo­ple who live near the area where she was found, and in­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve that she may have lived in the woods.

The woman has not yet been iden­ti­fied, and her body is be­ing trans­ported to the Of­fice of the Chief Med­i­cal Ex­am­iner in Bal­ti­more for an au­topsy.
