A 25-year-old woman was found dead near Metra train tracks Friday evening in the Lake View neighborhood on the North Side.
A crew member on Union Pacific North Line Train 355 spotted the body of the woman about 6:15 p.m. near Barry and Ravenswood avenues between the Clybourn and Ravenswood Metra stations, according to Katie Dahlstrom, a Metra spokeswoman.
The woman, identified as Davida Crystal Mastne Douthit, was struck by a train just after noon, but it was not clear which train struck her, Dahlstrom and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. She lived in the North Center neighborhood.
An autopsy Saturday didn’t immediately rule on the cause and manner of her death pending further investigation, the medical examiner’s office said.
