HEMPFIELD TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Authorities continue to investigate following a woman’s death in Westmoreland County Sunday.
Police say the 911 call came in early Sunday morning for help. Emergency crews were then dispatched to Elkhart Street in Hempfield Township.
They have not released details about the call.
