A woman notified Chico State police about a dead body she found in Big Chico Creek along the west side bike path of CSUC campus. Chico Police took over the investigation because the body was located on city property, not the University's. It is still under investigation. Police try to secure the scene and I respect that. They need the area to not be tampered with to conduct an investigation. As long as they are not too unreasonable in their request I am able to work around it. I do not want a picture of a dead body, however, I do need to be on scene to photograph the activity that accompanies an incident like this.

The woman contacted CSUC police, but they turned the investigation over to CPD because it was on city property. (Jason Halley/Chico Enterprise-Record)
