Police say that no criminal action caused the death of a 41-year-old Red Deer woman who was found dead near the city on Tuesday.

“The exact cause of death is not known at this time,” Red Deer Rural RCMP Staff Sgt. Gord Glasgow said Thursday .

He also said additional release of information comes under the jurisdiction of the Alberta Medical Examiner’s Office.

Police said the woman’s identity will not be released because they have been unable to secure permission of the woman’s family members.

RCMP were called after the woman’s body was found on Tuesday afternoon in a small wooded area between the north and south lanes of Hwy 2 near Gasoline Alley.

It was the second time in eight days that a body was found in or near the city.

Police said it appears the woman had been camping in a stand of trees just north of the Delburne Road overpass with a number of others.

She had been alive in the morning and was left alone at the camp. But when her companions returned about 2 p.m., they found her body.
