A 53-year-old Hinsdale woman was found dead Thursday evening on the Edens Expressway near suburban Skokie.

Marisa Giuliana Moura-Srivatava was located about 10:30 p.m. in the southbound lanes of I-94 near Old Orchard Road, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Officers also found an unoccupied vehicle with the engine running on a stretch of Old Orchard Road that passes over I-94, Illinois State Police said.

Troopers shut down all southbound lanes from 11 p.m. until 2 a.m. Friday for an investigation, according to Illinois State Police spokeswoman Elizabeth Clausing.

Clausing couldn’t immediately confirm a media report that said the woman was fatally struck in a hit-and-run, citing the “infancy of the investigation.”

Autopsy results are pending, according to the medical examiner’s office.
