STOWE TOWNSHIP — Community devastated after missing Stowe Township woman found dead near home
Allegheny County Police told Channel 11 they found a woman’s body last night in Stowe Township.
A family member confirmed it’s Patricia Moran and neighbors we spoke with are just devastated.
“I’ve seen her around the neighborhood when I’d walk my dog she’d always say hi and smile,” explained neighbor Leo Pompeo.
Moran, 64, of Stowe Township, went missing from her home on Wheeler Avenue on Sunday.
However the desperate search ended in tragedy, after her family says police found her body over the hillside near her home at 10:30 Friday night.
Some neighbors were shocked – saying she was such a nice person.
The family says they don’t suspect foul play and believe she fell down the hill. However, many are wondering what happened to her. Neighbors are heartbroken and tell me Moran will be very missed.
“We would love to know exactly what happened to her and I’m sure eventually police will find out exactly what happened,” Pompeo said. “She was a very nice lady, very friendly, and we are going to miss her.”
Right now homicide detectives are investigating the death. At this time, the county’s medical examiner has not released the identity of the body yet, or the cause of death.
