A 911 caller reported the body. She was identified as 28-year-old Ashley Nicole Childs of Stafford.

As police investigated, parishioners arrived at Summit Presbyterian church up the hill.

“Other than a lot of cars, I think that’s all we knew was going on at that time,” said Dave Thomen, of Summit Presbyterian.
