Police in Bristol were investigating the death of a 17-year-old girl whose body was found along Delaware Canal towpath.

The body was found Wednesday near Green Lane, said Bristol Police Chief Steven Henry. "Due to the age and it being unattended we are treating it as a suspicious death. The victim has been identified and the family of the victim has been notified," Henry said in an email Thursday night.

Bristol police were working with the Bucks County District Attorney's Office on the investigation, Henry said. The girl's name was being withheld. - Robert Moran
