Our next storm arrives Sunday... cloudier morning skies and scattered showers make way for more widespread rain by the afternoon... snow for the higher elevations and mountains. Sunday evening into Monday morning offers the best window for locally heavy rain and snow. The mountains will see significant snow. Rain and snow chances continue into Monday as the system exits Monday night... head over to the "Weather" tab for more information.
El Paso County investigators are looking into the discovery of a body found in a ditch south of Colorado Springs.
The body is of an elderly white woman and was found yesterday under an access road near Maxwell and Highway 85/87.
Authorities are trying to identify the woman, checking recent missing persons reports for leads. What makes it difficult, is the body had been out in the elements for some time and is in pretty bad shape.
Although it's unclear what led up to this woman's death, members of the El Paso County Major Crimes Unit are looking into the discovery.
A number of questions will be answered when the results of an autopsy are released: in particular, cause of death and identity which will likely come from dental records.
El Paso County authorities should have those answers in the next couple days.
