MIAMI (AP) - Police in Miami-Dade are investigating the death of an 18-year-old woman after witnesses called 911 and reported seeing a body fall out of a truck.
Investigators say witnesses saw a commercial truck heading eastbound on S.W. 288th Street Saturday morning.
As the truck made a left turn, what appeared to be a body fell from the passenger side. The truck stopped and a man exited and placed the body back inside.
Witnesses told police they lost sight of the truck moments later.
When detectives responded to the scene they found the victim's body at a construction site. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Witnesses reported seeing a 2 or 3-year-old child in the truck. Investigators are asking for the community to help locate the child.
