Investigators waiting for autopsy to learn cause of death

SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are trying to find out what killed a woman whose body was found in the middle of a busy South Side street.

They say people who were driving by first noticed the woman around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday and called 911.

Police and paramedics who responded to S. Zarzamora near W. Ansley Boulevard quickly determined she was dead.

Officers say while it appears she may have been pedestrian who was hit by a car, they also noticed a small wound on her forehead.

They say they will wait for an autopsy to determine whether that wound may have played a role in her death.

If she was hit by a vehicle, it appears that driver did not stop, police said.
