A decomposed body was found today about 100 yards from the Griffith Park Observatory.

The Los Angeles Police Department was notified about 11:30 a.m. after someone found it off a road.

Coroner officials have been called to the scene and will determine the gender and age. No other details were immediately available.

[Updated at 4:10 p.m.: The LAPD said the body was that of a woman. It's still unclear whether foul play was involved in her death.]
