Homicide detectives are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found on Jan. 29 at approximately 11 a.m. near the corner of Red Oak and Fern Dell drives in Griffith Park.
A citizen called 911 about someone laying in brush near the intersection, and officers found the body and notified the Los Angeles Police Department. Few details, including the suspected cause of death, have been released.
