The body of a woman was found outside a home on Ocean Avenue in Massapequa Thursday, Nassau County Police said.
The woman who appeared to be in her 40s or 50s was discovered by a construction crew working near the home shortly after noon, according to police.
They went onto the property because they heard water running inside the house. The woman was not identified and the cause of death is a mystery, pending a ruling by the Medical Examiner.
Police said there were no immediate signs of foul play.
