REEDSPORT, OR (KPTV) -

A couple who stopped at an Oregon Coast viewpoint to take in a Pacific Ocean view discovered a woman's body Sunday morning.

State troopers said the couple stopped at the Winchester Bay's Wayfinding Point west of Highway 101 and south of Reedsport at 8:20 a.m. When they saw the body, they called 911.

Investigators have since ruled the death a homicide, but they have not released the woman's name.

Detectives now asking for the public's help in finding information. Anyone who may have seen something suspicious at the Winchester Bay's Wayfinding Point is asked to call the tip line at 541-664-4600. Tips can also be sent to crimetips2OSP@state.or.us.

Wayfinding Point is about halfway between Florence and Coos Bay on the Oregon Coast. From there, coast visitors can view the ocean, a coastal lake and an historic lighthouse.
