CINCINNATI (AP) — Police say a woman found dead on the side of a road in Cincinnati has been identified.

Cincinnati Police Lt. Steve Saunders says the woman whose body was found Thursday alongside a road in the Cincinnati neighborhood of Camp Washington was 31-year-old Crystal Claxton. Her hometown was not immediately available Friday.

Police say a truck driver called 911 around 2 a.m. Thursday to report finding the body. Authorities have said they do not believe she had been dead very long when her body was found.
