OZARK, AL (WSFA) - The Ozark Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in a death investigation after they were unable to resuscitate a female victim.

The woman was found just inside the wood line near Fall Street and Popular Avenue. A 911 caller reported the victim at 12:40 p.m. Friday, saying the victim was possibly deceased and lying on the ground.

Law enforcement and medical personnel arrived but were unable to resuscitate the victim. Investigators processed the scene and transported the victim's body to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences.

They are looking for witnesses in the case. OPD says though it is very early in the investigation, foul play is suspected.

Anyone with information about this death investigation should call OPD at 334-774-2644 or central dispatch at 334-774-5111 and ask to speak to an investigator.
