Woman's body found in canal

Developing tonight... the fresno county sheriff's office is investigating, after a woman's body was found in a dry canal.

A passing driver discovered the body this afternoon, near brawley and jensen.

Deputies say the woman was possibly in her mid-30's to early 40's.

Deputies shut down brawly soon after the 9-1-1 call.

They say there are no visible injuries to the body, at least not enough to point to an obvious cause of death.

The sheriff's office says the autopsy... and the victim's i-d is necessary for the investigation to move forward.


Jon alvarado/fresno county sheriff's office: "once we do that then we can uh, talk to the family and uh, determine the, her timeframe as far as where was last seen, where she was last at, or who she was with."

Matt: people who live in the area say this is not something that normally happens in their neighborhood.

They do say they've noticed a lot of transients
