Police are investigating the discovery of a body Thursday morning in a section of Elwell State Park along the Connecticut River near the Norwottuck Rail Trail.
Mary Carey, spokeswoman for Northwestern District Attorney David Sullivan, said the body appears to be that of a woman in her 40s. The death does not appear to be suspicious, she said.
The office of the Chief Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.
Northampton police and state police assigned to Sullivan’s office are investigating.
The Daily Hampshire Gazette reports the body was found along the river near the elevated bike path crosses the river.
