    Maybe it's the body of Lisa Stebic, I wonder if the body had been frozen prior to the dumping.

    Blech, apparently she's been cut in half? What is wrong with people??

    I hope LE gets lots of fingerprints or other DNA so they can solve this quickly. Poor thing.

    I hope the killer left prints all over the bags and has a record so they can be matched.

    Someone is missing this woman. I hope she is identified quickly.

    I tried that link and got an error message. Maybe the site is down because I couldn't even pull up post-gazette.net

    Did they have any other information on her? I couldn't find any "missing" posters with her name.....

    The link worked for me, article said she was 39 and had had arrests in the past for prostitution. Her family had seen her a week before so probably no one even knew she was missing yet. Very sad for this to happen, no one deserves this.

    Thanks, VB! I've been trying all afternoon to get to that link. Of course it's my pc!

    I figured as much about the prostitution. LE better be on the lookout for past and future crimes like this, as it sounds like they have a possible Green River Killer in their midst. I hope it's just a one-time thing though.
