JACKSONVILLE — Authorities are investigating after a woman's decomposing body was found near downtown Jacksonville.

Officials said the woman's body was suspicious because of where it was found in the bushes. No other details were given.

The Florida Times-Union reports that investigators want to talk with a man in his 20s who was on a bicycle and told workers at a glass company that he discovered the body. He left after that.

Sgt. Michael Paul said the woman may have been dead for two weeks.
