INDIANAPOLIS — IMPD detectives are investigating the death of a woman found on the roof of a downtown bar and restaurant.

Officers were called to the Slippery Noodle around 6:30 Thursday evening. A detective at the scene estimated the woman had been on the roof for a day, but it is not clear how she got there.

IMPD says someone on a train passing by the restaurant saw a person on the roof and called the Slippery Noodle earlier in the day. IMPD was called later in the evening and officers found the woman.

The Marion County Coroner's Office identified the woman as Laura Jones, 39.

WRTV reached out to the Slippery Noodle for a statement. They declined to comment, however they made a statement on their Facebook page.
