Investigators said the remains were found at about 9:30 PM and have since been taken to the Lyken Funeral Home awaiting identification and post-mortem.

The body was clad in a blue top, brown and black brassiere, blue jeans, light blue underwear. The woman was described as brown in complexion; about 5 feet, 5 inches tall and appeared to be in the late thirties or early forties.

A yellow metal chain was found around her neck, and a pair of multi-coloured slippers and a burgundy cloth hammock were found nearby, police said.
