GROVE CITY, Pa.
Authorities have identified the young woman whose body was found in a western Pennsylvania landfill and say she was fatally stabbed.
The teen's body was found Wednesday afternoon at Tri-County Industries in Pine Township, about 45 miles north of Pittsburgh.
Mercer Coroner J. Bradley McGonigle III says the girl was stabbed in the chest.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that investigators were able to identify the teen by tracing numbers on steel rods surgically placed in her back to a Texas facility where the surgery was performed.
