CARLSBAD (CBS 8) - Police Monday are investigating a suspicious death in Carlsbad. 

A woman's body was found by hikers in a brushy area near the 3700 block of HaymarDrive around 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Police say the body, which was found near a homeless encampment, looked like it has been there for a few days.

Police think they know who the victim is. They are hoping to talk to friends and family members to get more information as they continue the investigation.

"We have no witnesses, that area is pretty remote... We do plan on going through that area in the next few days to try to locate anybody that may be familiar," Carlsbad police Lt. Matt Magro said.

Police also say the body appears have some stab wounds. An autopsy is scheduled today.
