A woman’s body has been found on a football field in Melbourne.
A passerby made the grim discovery at a pitch between Royal Parade and Princes Park Drive in Carlton North, shortly before 3am on Wednesday, police said.
Emergency services were called and paramedics worked on the woman, who is yet to be formally identified, but she was not able to be revived.
“The exact circumstances surrounding the incident are yet to be established and the investigation is ongoing,” police said.
Police set up a tent in the middle of the field on Wednesday morning and could be seen scouring the area.
