FAIRFIELD — Fairfield police and the FBI are investigating a body found floating early Thursday in the Putah South Canal along the 3200 block of North Texas Street, adjacent to the Solano County Transportation Department yard.
The call came in about 7:50 a.m. Police and fire responded to the scene, where they found a dead female.
Friday update: How body got in Fairfield canal remains a mystery.
“We are figuring out what we have,” Sgt. Randy Boggs of the Fairfield Police Department said at the scene. “It’s all preliminary.”
The canal is located on U.S. government property. As such, the Federal Bureau of Investigation joined the investigation.
Fairfield police issued a press release early Thursday afternoon that said the investigation was ongoing and no additional details were available. Lt. Stephen Crane said he couldn’t answer any questions, such as an approximate age or how long the body may have been there.
The coroner’s office did not release the name, either.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Fairfield Police Department Major Crimes Unit at 428-7600 or Crime Stopper at 644-7867. Callers may remain anonymous.
