Authorities received a call after somebody found a woman's body in a field. This happened in central Lufkin at the intersection of Dale and Knight. The field is located on a corner in that neighborhood.

Police are still investigating how the body got there. The cause of death is also still unclear. A man living in the area told us he and his cousin were the first to discover the woman's body.

"What happened was we went down there and saw a body off in the woods. It was a white female, and it looked like she was swollen. So, then I called 911," said nearby resident Ronnie Smith.

Other nearby residents told us the neighborhood has its share of problems, but is usually peaceful and quiet.
