LEBANON JUNCTION, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Kentucky State Police have launched an investigation after a woman's body was found in a grassy area along Interstate 65 north near Lebanon Junction around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Police said a mowing crew found the body wrapped in a sheet.

The coroner can't determine her race but say she's probably between 25 and 30-years-old with a height of 5 feet 2.5 inches to 5 feet 5 inches. Her hair is dark brown, shoulder length, wavy hair with a few red streaks or highlights.

Investigators are hoping someone may recognize the jewelry she was wearing: a gold ring with a turquoise oval stone and a gold earring that resembles a bee or other insect.

She had on pink colored sweat pants with white-striped trim around the waist and down the outside of each leg and a long-sleeved hooded top with a complex checked pattern of navy, red and light gray in large squares. Officials say the pattern mimics an old-fashioned crude patchwork quilt with large stitches.

They do suspect foul play in her death.

If you have any information, call Kentucky State Police.

Right now police are calling the woman's death suspicious because there are no signs of an automobile accident. Police said early Thursday the woman was killed by multiple blunt force trauma to the head.

Toxicology results are still pending and the victim's identity has not been released.
