Police have reopened Killarney Road after a woman’s body was discovered in a ditch, just north of Fredericton, on Tuesday.

The Oromocto RCMP said the body was discovered after 1:30 p.m.

Police have not yet been able to determine the cause of death, but it is considered suspicious,

Killarney Road was blocked until midnight, until police reopened one lane. Both lanes were cleared Wednesday around noon.

Police said they are still trying to identify the woman. The body was sent to Saint John for an autopsy.

Cpl. Chantal Farrah said it’s unclear how long the woman's body had sat in the ditch.
