The body of a woman was discovered on the rocks just south of the Kemper Center, 6501 Third Ave. Saturday afternoon.
According to Kenosha Police Lt. John DeMario authorities were alerted just before 3 p.m. after a person flying a kite by the lake reported to have seen a body on the breakwater rocks.
By 3:30 p.m. police at the scene had cordoned off the lakeshore walking path from 66th Street to the Kemper Center parking lot.
DeMario, who was one of the responding officers, said that there was no identification on the body but that it appeared that the person was a caucasian woman.
