Winnipeg police are saying little about the discovery of a woman at Assiniboine Forest who was pronounced dead in hospital.

Emergency crews were called to the park just before 1:45 p.m. Thursday after a passerby found an unresponsive woman in the area of the Eva Weirier Waterfowl Pond.

The woman was taken to hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police say they have not determined the woman's identity or the cause of death. The incident is under investigation by members of the police service's West District.
