Body found at Wilmington playground

Wilmington Police say the death of a woman found at the Canby Park playground is being considered “suspicious.”

Police have released very limited details about the discovery of a body at a Wilmington park near the area between the 600 block of S. Union St. and the 700 block of S. Lincoln St.

The adult woman’s body was found at the playground around 10:30 this morning. Investigators put police tape around the playground equipment. They also placed a yellow tarp over the top portion of the playground’s slide, possibly indicating where the body was discovered.

Police say the investigation is in preliminary stages.
