No foul play is suspected in the death of a 50-year-old woman whose body was found Tuesday morning on the steps of a downtown church, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Police said Dena Pope's body was found by the entrance to Jacksonville's Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.

The parking lot on the corner of Church and Ocean streets were cordoned off as a crime scene most of the morning.

Police said Pope was a transient from Pinellas Park.
