KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police are investigating after a woman was found dead in a ditch on Monday morning.
Crystal A. Vazquez, 38, was found lying face down by someone collecting trash around 10:15 a.m. Investigators said Vazquez appeared to have been there for a couple of days.
Her death is being investigated as a homicide, police said.
“The body’s in a ditch, so it’s off of the roadway as if someone, after they killed her they probably tried to hide the body,” he said.
Snapp added that the location of the body is peculiar.
“The location here is not somewhere where you’d go walking or anything, so it’s probably going to end up being a homicide,” he said.
