Sacramento County Sheriff's department officials say the body found in a Rosemont park this morning is that of a juvenile female.
A sheriff's spokesman said the victim was found about 6:30 a.m. today at Rosemont Community Park, near Mayhew Road and Kiefer Boulevard.
Her body was found in a dugout area of a baseball field. The girl had suffered trauma to her body but detectives have not labeled her death as a homicide.
Detectives are working to identify the girl, whose body was found by a woman walking in the park, which is adjacent to Albert Einstein Middle School. Sheriff's deputies have enlisted the help of the school's resource officer, a Sacramento police officer, to help in identification.
Deputies will be checking attendance records to see who did not show up for school today.
"We don't know for sure if she is a student there but we are checking schools in the area and cross-referencing missing person reports," said sheriff's department spokesman Deputy Jason Ramos. "Hopefully we will have her ID'd fairly quickly."
