Mounties in Sherwood Park say they are taking advantage of fresh snow during yesterday morning’s blizzard to find out how a woman mysteriously died along a walking path near an elementary school.

A woman was found by someone walking along the path sometime before 6:45 a.m. near Mills Haven Elementary School, Mounties said.

“(The woman) is on the younger side, but we don’t know for certain how old she is,” said Strathcona RCMP spokesman Wally Henry.

Police had blocked off the path, but classes at the school resumed as investigators were seen looking for clues.

Henry says police will be looking at when the snow fell in the area to determine how long the body has been there.

“We will be looking at any possible evidence that may have been left in the snow,” said Henry.

Police are asking anyone who may have been in the area where the body was found to call the Strathcona RCMP detachment at 780-467-7741.
