Police are investigating the death of a woman found dead on Old Fowl Road Wednesday morning.

According to police, a woman walking her dog found the body when her dog began barking at an object along the ditchline between the Elyria city limits and Albrecht Road.

The dog walker noticed a woman facedown in the grass and mud. The woman did not respond when the dog walker spoke to her, so the dog walker called police.

The Lorain County Coroner will determine a cause of death. The victim's identity has not been released. 

Elyria Police say they're working with the Lorain County Sheriff's Office on the investigation, due to the body being found between city limits.
