MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Police are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found Wednesday between Dam No. 4 Road and Rockymarsh Run in northeastern Berkeley County as a homicide, authorities said Friday.
The female was not identified, and police declined to explain how the body was found or who provided the tip to police that led to the discovery.
"The investigation is being treated as a homicide and the cause of death remains under investigation," West Virginia State Police Sgt. T.C. Kearns said Friday morning in a press release.
Kearns later confirmed that the body was found on the eastern bank of Rockymarsh Run, about seven-tenths of a mile from Scrabble Road.
