SODUS N.Y. (WROC) — State Police are investigating after a body was found in a ditch in Wayne County.
State Route 104 near Redman Road in Sodus was closed in both directions while officials investigated, but the roadway reopened to traffic around 6 p.m.
State police officials say they received a call at 2:50 p.m. for the report of a body found near 104 and Redman. When troopers arrived on scene they discovered the body of a deceased female.
“It’s a scene, we don’t know if it’s a crime scene or not, but it’s certainly a scene,” said New York State Police Troop E Public Information Officer Mark O’Donnell. “We’re not going to rule anything out.”
The Wayne County corner removed the body and will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death, officials say.
“We don’t believe there’s any foul play at this point, but it’s real early so we don’t rule anything out,” O’Donnell said.
O’Donnell says police have identified the deceased individual, but added that some family members still need to be notified before they release the person’s name.
Officials urge anyone with any information in regards to this incident to contact state police.
