Woman found dead in wooded area in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – A death investigation is underway in Lexington after a woman’s body was found in a wooded area Sunday afternoon on Sir Barton Way.

Police say a 62-year-old woman and her boyfriend were homeless, living in a tent in the woods on the corner of Sir Barton Way and Winchester Road.

They say the man woke up Sunday to find his girlfriend dead.

The coroner tells ABC 36 she had a medical history, but the cause of death is still unclear, but with temperatures reaching as low at seven degrees the night before, death could be caused by exposure to the cold.

The coroner says foul play is not suspected.

Her name is not being released until the coroner notifies her family.
