RIVERDALE — The body of a woman discovered Wednesday by a worker at a construction site has been identified, according to police.

The body of Marti Hall, 46, was discovered by an owner of the fourplex under construction on 1700 W. 4800 South.

"When I pulled up, I noticed some purple on the side of the fourplex," Kurt Nalder said. "I looked at it for another second and I realized it was her hand just sticking out above her so I just called 911."

Riverdale Police responded to the scene and said from what they could tell, there were no signs of obvious trauma on the woman's body. They said that the woman was fully clothed with a coat, and that she does not appear to be homeless.

Police officers said that it is possible that the woman may have fallen at the site and died as a result of the freezing temperatures.

The medical examiner removed the woman's body from the site around 10:00 a.m. and until the cause of death is determined, the case is considered suspicious, according to police.

"It's always suspicious when you find a body out in the elements in a yard like this," said Lt. Scott Brenkman, Riverdale Police Department.

Tracks were found in the snow leading to where the woman was found. Police said the tracks lead them to believe that the woman lives in the area.

Police are asking local residents to assess if any family members or neighbors have gone missing.
