Mystery surrounds woman's death after body found on I-4 in Orlando

Investigators are still searching for answers in the mysterious death of a woman found in the roadway on I-4 in Orlando late Thursday night.

The eastbound lanes near John Young Parkway were shut down for nearly 12 hours on Friday during the initial investigation. 

Police say they got several calls around 11:30 p.m. Thursday night about cars hitting what seemed to be a body on the interstate, near the Orange Blossom Trail exit.

"When officers arrived on scene, an adult female victim was found deceased on the interstate roadway and an unattended-crashed vehicle was located at the off-ramp, from I-4 onto OBT southbound," police said in a press release.
