KENOSHA — Kenosha police officials say they located a woman’s body Monday, July 9th just before 10:30 a.m. in Nedweski Park, in the 1600 block of 43rd Street.
Officials say the body was discovered as crews responded to a brush fire in the area.
Officials have not yet released the name or age of the victim.
There is no word at this time as to whether foul play may be a factor in the woman’s death.
Monday afternoon, Jim Sweet was walking his dog, Jack, in the park when their walk was cut short by police tape.
“Very shocking. I don’t see a lot of trouble around this area,” Sweet said.
Sweet says he has seen grass fires in the park as a result of the recent dry spell and says he hopes the fire and body found were just unfortunate accidents.
If not, Sweet says: “I hope they find the person who did that — it’s messed up.”
At least four families approached officers at the scene regarding missing family members they fear may be the person who’s body was found at the park.
Anyone with any information into this incident is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (262) 656-7333.
