CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Police are investigating after a body was found on the city's east side.

Crews were called to a field at East 93rd and Anderson in Cleveland around 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday. The body of a woman was found by a worker mowing grass at the rear of the field by the trees.

The Homicide Unit responded to the scene along with The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office.  

The victim has yet to be identified pending family notification.

No word on a cause of death at this time, but investigators believe the body was there for a while because it showed signs of decomposition.

Because the victim was found in the area where three women were violent attacked this spring, Black on Black community activist group is having an emergency meeting tonight at 6 p.m. at 13512 Kinsman.

Jasmine Trotter was found murdered at 1380 East 93rd Street in an abandoned house on March 24. One suspect was arrested, but charges have been dropped, although police say he is still a suspect.

Christine Malone was found deceased in the 9300 block of Bessemer in a field near abandoned homes on March 28. That case has not been solved.

Trotter, 20, and Malone, 45, died from blunt head trauma and strangulation.

A third woman was attacked and sexually assaulted in the 2900 block of East 116th on March 30. She managed to escape.
