Investigators told Channel 11 the woman's body was partially dressed and that it had been there for some time.

"Pittsburgh Zone 5 officers did locate a body and secured the scene," said Chris Togneri, spokesperson for Pittsburgh police. "It's still too early to determine identity, cause, anything like that."


Channel 11 contacted a Penn Hills woman whose daughter has been missing for months.

She said she heard that a woman's body had been found and contacted police right away.

They told her the Allegheny County medical examiner hasn't made a determination yet.
