    Pennsylvania State Police say they have a tentative identification for a body found in a chest freezer in central Pennsylvania last week, but the cause of death remains unknown.

    The York Dispatch reports two potential home buyers found the body Thursday in an outbuilding on a vacant Warrington Township property. Authorities said the remains were in black trash bags covered by a blanket.

    York County Coroner Pam Gay said the body appeared to be female and was ‚Äúsignificantly decomposed‚ÄĚ but an autopsy today revealed no obvious signs of trauma. She said more tests are needed to determine whether the death was natural, accidental or otherwise.

    The coroner said the body appears to be a female but hasn't been identified. State police said they suspect it is an elderly woman. They have been talking to a woman who is believed to be her granddaughter.

    WGAL's Ed Weinstock spoke with the woman Monday outside her home in York County. We aren't identifying her because she hasn't been charged in the case. She told Ed that state police think she's involved in the case, and she said it's a major possibility she will face charges. She denied any involvement.

    sounds like unreported death in order to continue to receive her benefits.

    If they had a "tenative" ID back in Feb, why would this person be put into NAMUS? Was it not the person that they thought it was?

    Probably to get the DNA ball rolling. They did the same thing with Mary Arcuri and the Garfield (Pittsburgh) remains. Since they went through NamUs for DNA and ID, both cases were added to NamUs database even though they were certain who the remains were.

    There's another thread for this UID. I'll report my own post so they can be merged.
