Hunters find woman's body in Manitowoc County

MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) - The Manitowoc County sheriff's department is investigating the death of a 50-year-old woman found Saturday by hunters.

The sheriff's department says deputies received a call around 5:15 a.m. that a group of hunters found a woman's body in some Town of Cooperstown woods and didn't know if she was alive.

Deputies are treating the death as a homicide. The department says investigators conducted a search warrant Saturday and found a possible suspect.

The woman is from the Green Bay area and deputies think she had been there for less than 24 hours.

An autopsy is planned for Monday.
