ANCHORAGE - Police are trying to determine the sex and identity of a body found near a West Anchorage bike trail.
The body was located Sunday night by a trail user.
Police said it appears the body had been in a wooded area near Raspberry Road and Minnesota Drive for weeks or months, making identification efforts more difficult.
The cause of death also couldn't immediately be determined, but officials say it did not appear to be suspicious.
