The Butte County Sheriff's Office says it is investigating a homicide after a woman's body was found outside a home in west Chico Monday morning.

Sheriff's officials say that around 8 a.m. a man called 911 and told dispatchers that he had found a body in front of his home on Rose Avenue, between Oak Park Avenue and Chico River Road. At this time it appears as though the man does not know the victim.

Officials say they have not been able to identify the victim, but say they have ruled her death a homicide.

Authorities didn't say whether they believe the woman was killed outside the home or if her body was disposed there after she was killed.

The sheriff's office is asking for anyone who knows someone who may be missing, or did not make it home last night to call them as soon as possible.
