Police searched for a hit-and-run driver after a woman’s body was found along an area roadway.
A passerby made the grisly discovery around 8:45 Friday morning in a grassy area along the 600 block of Marsh Road in Wilmington, Del.
Paramedics announced the yet-to-be-identified woman a short time later.
According to Delaware State Police, preliminary evidence indicated that a vehicle struck the woman then fled the scene, which is near a community and sports fields.
