RCMP are investigating after a woman’s body was found in downtown Fort McMurray Saturday.

"Right now, the investigation is ongoing," said Cst. Jesse Jones.

"It’s too early to rule out foul play."

Jones says a man was walking his dog in the area Saturday when he came across the body.

The woman was found in a semi-secluded green space near the road.

Jones says they are investigating whether the woman died of exposure.

"If it’s one of those things that unfortunately happen here in northern Alberta, where someone was not dressed for the weather. "

An autopsy will be done in Edmonton.
