SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Savannah-Chatham Metro Police are investigating after a dead body was found in a drainage ditch Thursday morning on Savannah's Southside.

Officials say the body of the black female was discovered around 8:15 a.m. in the 12300 block of Mercy Boulevard. They say there are no obvious signs of foul play.

People who live in the area say they're not used to police scenes in their neighborhood.

"That was unusual. I was very shocked because it's very quiet. This apartment where I live is very quiet. Nothing happens, nothing goes on," said Gerald Rembert.

The body has been taken to the GBI Crime Lab for further investigation.

No other details have been made available at this time.
