Woman's body found at Newark elementary school
NEWARK A teacher at a Newark elementary school made a shocking discovery Wednesday morning when a female body was found on school grounds.
According to police officials, the body was found at the bottom of a stairwell at the 14th Avenue Elementary School. Although the body was located near an entrance used by many students, school officials say none of those in attendance saw the slain woman.
Some neighbors who live nearby say the schools gates are left open at night, which allows the facility to become a gathering place for individuals. According to one Newark resident, those who meet at the school after closing often cause trouble.
The identity of the dead woman has not been released. Police are conducting an autopsy and have labeled the womans death as suspicious.
