ECONOMY, Pa. (AP) – A burial service is set a year after a woman’s embalmed head was found in a wooded area in western Pennsylvania.
The head was found on Dec. 12, 2014 in Economy, about 15 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.
Economy police, the Beaver County coroner and others have worked to identify the woman. They will attend the service on Saturday at Beaver Cemetery.
Economy Police Chief Michael O’Brien plans a news conference Monday to release additional information about the investigation, but won’t say until then whether authorities have determined the identity of the remains or how the head wound up in the woods.
O’Brien has said investigators don’t believe the woman was local.
They’ve created a bust of her head and distributed pictures of it, in hopes someone will recognize the woman.
