Woman found slain in Homewood identified as East Liberty resident

Wednesday, July 17, 2013, 6:57 p.m.
 

The woman who was found shot to death along a secluded, dead-end street in Homewood was identified on Wednesday as a resident of East Liberty.

The body of Samantha Powe, 30, was found Tuesday afternoon along the side of Hallam Street, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said. An autopsy showed she died of head wounds, the spokesman said.

Her body was found lying face down in a puddle by a motorist who was turning around because of a tree and power lines that were downed on Perchment Street because of a storm.

Pittsburgh homicide detectives are still trying to identity suspects and confirm a motive for the slaying, said police Lt. Daniel M. Herrmann.
