Body of woman found on bike path at Camp Lejeune

CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (WITN) - Camp Lejeune officials say the body of a woman has been found on a bike path this morning on base.

NCIS is investigating the death, according to a base spokesman.

The body was found around 6:00 a.m. on the section of the bike path that approaches the main gate at Camp Lejeune.

The base has closed a nearby contractor vetting office, the Rapid Gate, as well as the bike path as they investigate.

Camp Lejeune hasn't said if the woman is a Marine or a civilian, or her age. While that section of the bike path is on base, civilians have access to it.

The base is calling this an unattended death at this point.
