Woman found dead on I-10 East at Bullard Ave.

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A body was found Thursday morning on eastbound I-10.

Officers say the body of a woman was found on the interstate at Bullard Avenue around 6:30 a.m.

It is classified as an "unclassified death," according to the New Orleans Police Department. Little information is known at this time.

Investigators were seen recovering the body in at least six places, according to our partners at Nola.com/The Times Picayune. They were seen from the overpass just beyond WalMart and further down the exit ramp leading to several car dealerships.

The highway was closed for several hours as crews investigated. The interstate has since been re-opened.
