Woman’s body found in Dighton

A 47-year-old woman whose body was found on a dirt road in a partially completed Dighton housing development Wednesday has been identified.

The body of Tracey L. Hunter of Dighton was found by a resident around 8:15 a.m. Wednesday on a road adjacent to a completed section of Hunter’s Hill, Bristol District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III’s office said in a statement.

Dighton police, State Police detectives, and prosecutors are “actively investigating,” the statement said. The state medical examiner will perform an autopsy to attempt to determine the cause and manner of death, prosecutors said.
