Police in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez have found the body of a woman on a dirt road.

The find of the body of 29-year-old Abigail Rodriguez yesterday comes in a city made infamous by the killings of more than 100 other young women since 1993.

State prosecutor Flor Rocio Munguia says no arrests have been made in Rodriguez's death and the circumstances surrounding her killing are unclear.

Local authorities say Rodriguez apparently was killed by a blow to the head and was thrown from a moving car. She's the 14th woman found dead in Juarez so far this year.

The discovery comes after federal prosecutors last month quietly gave up their investigation into the killings of 14 women who'd been raped and strangled. They were perhaps the most notorious cases among more than 100 unsolved killings of women in the area since 1993.
