CHESHIRE, CT (WFSB) -- Cheshire police are investigating after a body was found along the Farmington Canal Heritage Trail on Tuesday.

Police said the body was found Tuesday morning around 9:30 a.m., between School House Road and West Johnson Avenue.

Investigators were called after someone complained about suspicious items in the area.

Police said a white female was found about 70 feet from the trail, down an embankment. 

There was no identification for the female. 

There's also no word on a cause of death. An autopsy will be performed.

State police were called in to assist with the investigation.

The trail was closed to the public for most of the day but it reopened right before 6 p.m.
