POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY, Okla. - A  female body was found in a ditch by a passerby near Hwy 9 and S. Rock Creek Saturday morning.

A jogger spotted the body around 9 a.m. and called police.

Police say there's a field at the intersection and the body is in a ditch.

Authorities say there is no apparent cause of death.

Pottawatomie Sheriff's Office is the lead agency right now. They're working with Shawnee PD and OSBI.

The street is a dead end road and Undersheriff Palmer told News 4 it’s obvious the area is used for dumping.

Officers say it is too early in the investigation to speculate anything else.
