SAN ANTONIO -

Investigators with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office were trying to determine how a woman’s body ended up on the side of a road in Southern Bexar County Monday.

The victim’s body was discovered on the side of Watson Road about a mile West of the San Antonio Speedway.

A passer-by located the body in some high weeds and trees and called it in around 6:30 p.m.

A deputy at the scene said the woman’s body was in an advanced state of decomposition and it was difficult to know how long it had been there before being discovered.

Investigators with the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office will perform an autopsy on the body in an attempt to learn how the woman was killed.
