    Philadelphia police are investigating the discovery of a body in the surrounding area of I-95 in Southwest Philadelphia.

    Authorities found the body just after 12 p.m. on Thursday in the 7900 block of Penrose Ferry Road and Bartram Avenue, not far from the highway.

    Police said that the body is too decomposed for them to determine the individual's gender, age or race, or how the person died.

    The medical examiner will work to identify the remains and determine the exact cause of death.
