LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A death investigation is underway after police say a woman's body was found on the ground in the parking lot of Trinity Baptist Church.

The woman's body was discovered around 7:00 on Thursday morning. We're told the robbery/homicide unit of the police department was on the scene, but a sergeant on the scene says, after investigating, they have ruled out homicide as a cause and don't suspect foul play.

Police did say that they believe the church had nothing to do with the circumstances surrounding how the woman's body came to be in the parking lot.

The Fayette County Coroner's Office has identified the woman as Bobbie Jo Hall of Abingdon, Virginia. The cause and manner of death are pending the results of an autopsy.
