Police in Texas are investigating the death of a woman whose half-naked body was found lying between tombstones at a cemetery.

The woman, who has not been identified, was discovered by an employee Friday morning at Forest Park Cemetery in Lawndale, according to news station KTRK.

“An employee that does digging and landscape work here was driving a tractor through the cemetery and observed her lying in the grass,” Houston Police Department officer Brian Chebret said.

Authorities said that her death appears to be suspicious, news station KHOU reported. An autopsy has been ordered to determine the cause of death.

The victim is believed to be between 30 and 40 years old, officials said.

“[We’re] just looking for witnesses that may have been in the area, last night or this morning, and go from there,” Chebret told KTRK. “We need to get her identified so we can figure out who her friends and family are.”
