DNA samples a family submitted helped identify a woman who died 12 years ago at the Waterfront, the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said Friday.

The woman, Amanda S. Myers, 22, of Pittsburgh, was buried with two other unidentified women in 2009, but the FBI DNA Laboratory kept samples of her genetic material. That matched samples members of her family submitted to the Pittsburgh Police, the medical examiner's office said.
