CHIPPEWA TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KDKA) — Investigators say they’re working multiple leads after a woman was found shot to death in Beaver County.
“We are working around the clock on this case. We’re on a proper path at this point, and I’m hoping we can bring some type of arrest here in the near future,” said Chippewa Police Chief Eric Hermick.
An autopsy showed 46-year-old Sharon Benyo was shot twice in the head, officials said during a press conference Thursday.
Benyo’s body was discovered by a gas line worker nearby Route 51 Constitution Boulevard about 500 yards west of McKinley Avenue. Police say Benyo had been there for a period of time before she was found.
She had just recently been released from prison and last seen on Sunday. The Beaver County District Attorney said it was unclear where she was living or what she was doing.READ MORE: Body Found In Beaver County, Homicide Investigation Underway
