A woman was found dead on the front lawn of her Dunedin home this morning.
Dunedin Police Senior Sergeant Brian Benn said neighbours discovered the woman's body outside her home in Sutcliffe St, St Clair about 7.30am.
"She appears to have fallen down some stairs outside her home," Benn said.
"We've done a scene examination and found nothing unusual . However, we are awaiting post-mortem results to confirm that."
Mr Benn did not know the dead woman's age.
