The body of a girl has been found in a Sacramento park Tuesday morning.

Sacramento County Sheriff's deupties identified the girl as 13-year-old Jessica Funk-Haslam, an 8th-grader at Albert Einstein Middle School.

A woman collecting cans in Rosemont Park, along Americana Way, found the body around 6:30 a.m. She found the girl in the dugout area of the baseball field.

Deputies say Funk-Haslam has some trauma, but they would not elaborate. The death is being investigated as a homicide.

The park is located right next to Albert Einstein Middle School. District spokesperson Gabe Ross said they sent out automated phone calls to parents to alert them of the situation, and are trying to keep everything normal for students.

Ramos said their next step is to figure out how the body ended up in the dugout, since little league teams used the park Monday evening.

A groundskeeper at the park told FOX40 he was there late Monday night and did not see anything suspicious, so he believes the body was at the park early Tuesday morning.

Sacramento City Unified School District Spokesperson Gabe Ross released this statement Tuesday afternoon:

"We are saddened and deeply troubled by the loss of a promising young student. We continue to assist the Sheriff’s Office with their investigation and to provide support to the Albert Einstein school community as they struggle to cope with this horrific news. School officials are communicating information about this tragedy to families and staff via automated phone calls. Crisis counselors will be dispatched to the campus first thing tomorrow morning. Our hearts go out to this child’s family and friends in their time of grief."
