The Albany Police Department says it got a call Monday morning about a strong odor along the Dave Clark Riverfront Path.
When they got there, they found the body of a woman between the Willamette River and the sidewalk.
“It was actually up underneath where part of the sidewalk jets out over the embankment in kind of a shelf area up underneath there. So it was not down by the water, but it was up towards the sidewalk area,” said Capt. Eric Carter, Albany Police Department.
Police say they don’t know how long the woman had been there or how she died. They hope to have autopsy results within the next few days.
