A woman whose body was found on the side of the road in Pittsburg this morning appears to have died from a drug overdose, but police are waiting for further tests to determine her official cause of death, police Lt. Brian Addington said.

A newspaper deliverywoman found the body on the side of the off-ramp that leads from eastbound Willow Pass Road to Range Road shortly after 5 a.m.

There were no signs of trauma or injury to the woman's body, Addington said. Police have identified the woman, who was 46, but were not releasing her name this afternoon because her family hasn't been notified of her death.
