D.C. police are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found in an industrial area of Northeast early Wednesday.

Investigators are still trying to identify the woman, who was found dead in the 1900 block of Fenwick Street in the Ivy City area of Northeast. Her death has not been ruled a homicide as the medical examiners are still working to determine her cause of death, said Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Officer Araz Alali.

Officers found the woman, who is described as a white adult, around 5 a.m. after police were called to the location for a report of trouble.

Officer Alali could not say Wednesday whether the woman had any obvious signs of trauma on her body.

No further information was immediately available.
