MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner was called to a location near the Milwaukee Art Museum for a death investigation.

The  Medical Examiner tells TODAY’S TMJ4 they were called around 5:30 a.m.  Wednesday by the Milwaukee Fire Department for a report of a deceased woman. 

According to the Milwaukee Fire Department, a 911 caller reported a woman who was "very white and not moving" from what appeared to be from an "accident."

When fire crews arrived at the scene the woman had no pulse and was not breathing. The Medical Examiner says they found no signs of trauma to the woman's body and do not believe this was the result of a suicide. 

An autopsy will be performed Wednesday.
