    St. Louis, MO) — Homicide detectives responded to a strange scene in north St. Louis Tuesday night, involving a dead woman who was only half dressed.

    Police went to a house where the homeowner says he found the woman hanging halfway out a first floor kitchen window. She was naked from the waist down. She was pinned halfway inside the home by a window that somehow closed on her.

    Investigators believe she might have gotten stuck while trying to climb into the home. Police say her pants apparently fell off while she struggled to free herself.

    St. Louis Police Lt. Colonel Roy Joachimstaler said, "From all indications from the scene, it appears she was trying to break into the house." The victim did not have any identification, but the homeowner says the dead woman did not live there.

    An autopsy will determine the exact cause of death. Right now, the unidentified woman's death is classified as suspicious.

    ok, that might just be the strangest thing I've ever heard. I'm assuming, since they said it appears she was trying to break-in, that she was found with her top half inside/bottom half outside? My god, that's weird!!!!! I would say suspicious, indeed!!! I don't even know WHAT to speculate. Hope they publish the outcome of the investigation ...

    Well, according to this site
    http://www.kmov.com/localnews/storie....16488f25.html
    ... she was just 36 ...
    (KMOV) -- Police believe a 36-year-old Lincoln County woman trying to burglarize a home died of asphyxiation, after getting pinned by a window.
    I sure hope they follow up after the autopsy ....

    ETA:
    There's a bit more info at this link:

    I guess the homeowner knew her ... Or at least had her over at least once. Weird.
    Police said the woman had spent Monday at the house on Mimika, and on Tuesday morning she went on her way and homeowner went to work. The woman obviously returned, and broke out a kitchen window, unlatched it and tried to crawl through, police said. But the window had a second latch that permitted it to raise up only so far, and the woman became wedged and later died, police said.

    This article gives the woman's full name:

    And upon a court records search (in Lincoln county alone), I found numerous charges against this woman ranging from traffic offenses to "adult abuse stalking" and "fraudulent use of credit/debit."

    She's a convicted felon, and has served time for her crimes. No wonder the police believe she was breaking into the home.
