Police expand search to ID dead woman

State police in Butler continue to search for clues to identify a female body found at a waste disposal site near the Mercer-Butler County line.
Workers at Tri-County Industries Inc. discovered the body Wednesday afternoon while loading trash into trucks at the company’s waste transfer station on TCI Park Drive in Pine Township, state police said.
The landfill collects trash from nine counties, spanning as far east as Clarion County and as far west as Youngstown, Ohio, and north to Erie.
It also collects garbage from more than 20 municipalities in the northern half of Butler County.
The sorting facility takes most of its garbage to the Seneca Landfill in Jackson Township, police said.
Troopers were at the landfill today searching for any evidence that may have been brought to the dump.
Trooper Dan Kesten said at an 11:30 a.m. news conference that the body had no identification. An autopsy is being conducted in Erie.
Kesten did not know what, if any, injuries the body had.
Kesten said the woman is 16 to 25 years old. She is 5’1” to 5’3” tall and of medium build. She has blue eyes. She was found wearing a black tank top, black yoga pants, and white socks with green trim. She had pierced ears.
Anyone with information is asked to contact state police at 724-284-8100.
