LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) - Authorities are investigating what they are calling the suspicious death of a 62-year-old Lawrence woman.

The woman, identified Wednesday as Justina Rosa, was found dead outside a Hampshire Street apartment building early Tuesday. It is estimated she died sometime between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m.

A spokeswoman for the Essex district attorney says Rosa was wearing a black wool coat, a green silk blouse, blue jeans and fluorescent pink and blue sneakers. She was also wearing distinctive jewelry.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday to determine the manner and cause of death.

Authorities did not immediately disclose how Rosa died or say whether she lived in the building citing the ongoing investigation.
