A death investigation is underway after a body was found on the side of the road along Interstate 25, just south of the Greenland exit Saturday morning.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office was called to the area shortly after 10 a.m. Deputies arrived on scene and shut down at least one southbound lane of traffic to investigate.

By 3 p.m., the sheriff's office said they were investigating the body found as a homicide.

Traffic cameras in the area showed vehicles moving at a crawl for most the day.

No further details have been released.

9NEWS has a crew headed to the scene and will update this story as more information becomes available.
