The body of an elderly woman was found behind an empty warehouse on Oregon Avenue in South Philadelphia yesterday afternoon.
Detectives said last night they were trying to determine whether it was the body of an 80-year-old woman reported missing several weeks ago, and whether foul play was involved.
No gunshot or stab wounds were found on the body, police said. An autopsy was scheduled for today.
A truck driver found the body in brush behind the building, at 8 Oregon Ave., about 4 p.m. - Jeff Shields
