Woman's body on I-10 closes highway in eastern New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans police say a woman's body has been found on Interstate 10 in eastern New Orleans, closing a section of the eastbound highway.

Officer Juan Barnes, a police spokesman, says the woman's identity and the cause of her death are both unknown.
He says the coroner will determine the cause of death.

Barnes says the body was found about 7 a.m. Thursday just past the exit to Bullard Avenue. Barnes says that after more than two hours, the entrance at Bullard was reopened, allowing drivers to get off the highway and then immediately back on.
