Santa Clara County sheriff’s detectives are investigating the discovery of a body in unincorporated San Martin on Saturday. Deputies responded to a report of a possible body near Llagas Avenue, north of Church Avenue, at about 7:40 p.m. Upon arrival they found the body of a female at the base of a tree near the roadway. There were no obvious signs of foul play, sheriff’s officials said. The sheriff’s office is investigating the case as an unattended death. An autopsy is scheduled for this afternoon, sheriff’s Sgt. Rick Sung said. Sung said the body was found by a woman who had been walking several dogs. One of the dogs had run off, and when she came back with her husband to look for it, they noticed a foul odor and discovered the body.
