The Ocala Police Department was investigating a death late Tuesday afternoon after a maintenance crew found heavily decomposed human remains.
Officers responded to an area in the 4900 block of E. Silver Springs after the remains were found in a drainage retention area. Officers haven’t been able to determine a great deal surrounding the circumstances of the death, a report states.
So far, detectives believe the body is that of a female, but they don’t know her age or race or the circumstances of her death. Detectives and evidence personnel are continuing to investigate and the police department hopes to release more information at a later time.
