Police were investigating a woman’s death in southeastern Lawrence late Monday into early Tuesday but provided only vague information in a social media post.

First responders were dispatched to a medical emergency call in the 1300 block of East 25th Terrace, which is between Haskell Avenue and Harper Street, around 8 p.m. Monday.

A reporter saw officers interviewing people and never saw any medics at the scene. Officers had put a tarp around the woman’s body, which was on the home’s front porch.

The Lawrence Police Department did not respond to an email seeking information about the investigation at 9 p.m. Monday but posted to Facebook about the call just after 1:30 a.m.

“Officers discovered no obvious signs of trauma, began interviewing potential witnesses, and called investigators in to continue working the case,” according to the post.

Police did not name the woman in their post.

In an update Tuesday afternoon, police wrote that “Investigators continue to gather information about last night’s death of a 35-year-old Lawrence woman. Detectives have been working diligently to trace the woman’s actions and interactions in the minutes and hours prior to finding her deceased. With no obvious cause of death, we will continue to investigate and an autopsy has been scheduled.”
