A woman's body was found Friday morning at the downtown SCAT Bus Transfer Station in Sarasota, the Sarasota Police Department reported.
At about 4 a.m., officers were waved down by a group of people concerned about a woman who wasn't moving at the transfer station. Officers soon determined that the woman, believed to be homeless, had died.
Officers believe she was staying at the station to avoid the storms that passed through the area, according to the report.
