PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Around 9:45 Thursday morning, police and paramedics were called to the parking lot of a deck hockey complex in Renzie Park in McKeesport after receiving a call about an unresponsive person in the woods. 

When they arrived they discovered a black female wearing a yellow sundress. 

She was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Based on a preliminary investigation, it looks like the victim may have died in another place and was transported to the park. 

 An autopsy will be conducted Friday but the initial examination shows signs of strangulation. 

Surveillance video around the park captured a sedan arriving at the park around 11:15 p.m. Wednesday evening.

The vehicle has been identified as a silver 2007 Chevy Impala with the PA license plate: LBF 0239. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Allegheny County Police Tipline 1-833-ALL-TIPS.
