Police: Woman's body found in New Buffalo

Michigan State Police say a woman's body was found in New Buffalo Township Sunday morning.

At approximately 11:24 a.m. Sunday, Michigan State Police responded to an area north of US12, a quarter mile east of Hoder Road in New Buffalo Township after someone found a woman's body.

Police say the victim is a black female approximately 30-40 years old.

Investigators believe the body may have been dumped at the location.

Officials say the woman's body was found just north of the Amtrak right-of-way, but they do not believe the woman was struck by a train, because they found no outward sign of trauma.

The woman has not been identified, and police are seeking the public's help. Officials ask that if you are aware of a missing black female, please report her to your local police department.

Investigators are also looking into the possibility that the woman's body could have been transported to this location from out of state, because it is near Exit 4 of I-94.

Police are also checking missing persons reports.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Monday morning at Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Michigan State Police were assisted at the scene by the Berrien County Sheriff's Department, New Buffalo City Police Department, and Three Oaks Police Department.
