An investigation continues into a body found in the Lower Valley. Police got a call reporting a dead body around 4:00 p.m. Tuesday. Officers found the body in an open field on North Loop, right near Loop 375. The Crimes Against Persons unit was called out, and investigated through the afternoon. No cause of death has been given, and it's not known if foul play is involved.
"All options are open. We're not ruling this a homicide, a murder, a natural death.... We just don't know at this point. The investigation is unfolding as we speak." said El Paso Police Department spokesman Mike Baranyay.
The county medical examiner was called out to the scene, and police say it could be some time before we find out a cause of death. NewsChannel 9 will keep you posted.
