Woman found dead near Interstate ramp

Memphis police are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found at Mount Moriah and I-240 on Sunday morning.

When police and paramedics arrived, the woman - possibly in her late teens - was pronounced dead at the scene.
  
Investigators say she appeared to have been run over, but the official cause of death has not been determined.

"At this time we're investigating to find out if there are any other causes of trauma, other than the fact that she was run over," said Major Frank Garrett.
 
Police describe the victim as a black female wearing a white top, blue jeans and a green and blue jacket.
