Receipts found with her body indicated she had recently travelled through Wisconsin and Indiana. She was identified by fingerprints found on the receipts. A motive was not immediately released in the shooting.
She was found fully clothed but with no visible signs of trauma, but her death was being investigated as a homicide. Gunshot wounds were identified in an autopsy Monday.

Coroner Dominic Adamo said he believed she was killed elsewhere, and that her body was dumped along the interstate. A Pennsylvania State Police press release said her body was “left along the off-ramp.”
