TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ Tulsa police are investigating the death of a female, whose body was found outside an abandoned motel.

``We don't know if it is a heat death, a homicide or suicide, but there was no sign of trauma to the body,'' Officer Lucky Lamons said Friday.

Officers were called to a brushy area behind the motel, where the body was in a stage of ``advanced decomposition,'' Lamons said.

The state Medical Examiner's office will determine the cause of death, he said.
