TOWN OF MINERAL POINT, Wis. (AP) — Authorities in southwestern Wisconsin say the death of a 13-year-old girl is suspicious.

According to the Iowa County Sheriff's Office, the girl was found in the Town of Mineral Point.

WISC-TV reports the sheriff's office says there are no indications that the death involves child sex trafficking and there is no threat to the public.

Officials say the investigation could take a "considerable amount of time."
