Police are investigating the scene along a busy Treasure Coast highway after the body of a woman was found Tuesday morning.
NBC affiliate WPTV-TV reports the body was discovered along I-95 in the southbound lanes in St. Lucie County.
A man called Florida Highway Patrol deputies after he saw the body when he pulled over with car trouble.
Chopper footage showed the scene just feet away from the roadway. One southbound lane remains closed while the medical examiner removed the body just before 1 p.m.
The St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office said the woman was middle-aged and either white or Hispanic and was likely left on the side of the interstate sometime during the overnight hours.
Detectives identified her as between 30 and 50 years of age, being 5'4" and weighing 112 pounds with blonde hair and brown eyes.
No additional details were released at this time.
