Deputies classified the death of a woman at a makeshift homeless camp as a homicide Saturday afternoon.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office worked the scene after the call came at 8:30 a.m. that the woman appeared lifeless at the camp near 320 E Fletcher Ave. Detectives and crime scene technicians worked for several hours to determine what happened, said spokesman Larry McKinnon. Medical examiners said she died of upper body trauma.
They did not release the woman's name. No information was released about a suspect or arrest.
