HUBBARD, OR (KPTV) -

A woman found dead on the side of a gravel road in rural northern Marion County was shot multiple times, according to investigators.

The body of 36-year-old Brenda Bautista was discovered in a ditch by a passerby on Pirelli Lane Northeast at 7 a.m. Monday.

Deputies initially called the death "suspicious," and on Tuesday, following an autopsy, the case was deemed a homicide.

The medical examiner determined Bautista died of multiple gunshot wounds.

There was no possible suspect information immediately released in this case.  

The Marion County Sheriff's Office is hoping to talk to anyone who may know Bautista or who saw or spoke with her recently. The sheriff's office phone number is 503-540-8096.
