Trash collectors in Gloucester County yesterday discovered the body of a woman near busy I-295, authorities said.
The fully clothed body was spotted shortly before 3 p.m. as the crew passed near Exit 17 in East Greenwich, said Bernie Weisenfeld, spokesman for Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean F. Dalton.
Authorities identified the woman, a county resident in her mid-20s, through fingerprints. They withheld her name until relatives could be reached.
There was no obvious sign of trauma, detectives said. An autopsy was scheduled for later.
