NEW HAVEN — Police are investigating after a body was found Saturday morning on Quinnipiac Avenue, according to Capt. Anthony Duff.

Duff said a person walking their dog came across a body “in the low tide marsh adjacent to Quinnipiac Avenue near East Grand Avenue” just before 8 a.m.

“Investigators have determined the deceased is an adult female who was fully clothed with no obvious signs of trauma to her body,” said Duff.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the New Haven Police Department Detective Bureau at 203-946-6304.

The woman’s identity has not yet been released; Duff said updates would be provided after her next of kin were notified.

The body has been determined not be related to an unsubstantiated report that a man jumped from a bridge near Grand Avenue and Front Street in recent days, Duff said.

Emergency responders were called for that incident, but could not find a man or substantiate the report, Duff said.

The woman’s remains were taken away from the scene by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, Duff said. The cause of her death is unknown at this time. The medical examiner’s office will perform an autopsy, Duff said.
