Woodland Park Police say they're investigating the death of a woman whose body was found at about 10:30 a.m. Saturday outside of a residence in the city.
The woman was identified as 34-year-old Joey Michelle Carlson. A cause of death wasn't immediately available, but a statement by Woodland Park police said "all unexplained deaths are treated as suspicious until the cause of death has been determined." An autopsy will be conducted next week, police said.
A Woodland Park police dispatcher said he couldn't say who found the woman and couldn't provide an address where her body was found, although a Colorado Springs television station reported the location of the residence was on Woodland Park's northeast side.
Carlson was a Woodland Park resident, but the residence where she was found wasn't hers, the dispatcher said.
