Police in Belleville now know the identity of a woman found dead behind a business Tuesday morning. Authorities haven't released her name, but say she was 83 years old and lived about 10 blocks from where she was found.
Robert Holmes, the owner of a local auto shop made the discovery about 10:30 a.m. He called police after finding the woman's body in a snowbank behind his shop in the 1800 block of West Main Street.
The victim had been wearing only pajamas and blood was found on the ground in the area. An autopsy has been performed, but police haven't released her cause of death.
BEIJING (AP) — A state-run Chinese newspaper says the third person killed in the Boston Marathon bombings is a Chinese graduate student at Boston University originally from China's northeastern city of Shenyang.
The Shenyang Evening News reported Wednesday on its official Twitter-like microblog account that the victim is named Lu Lingzi. An editor at the newspaper says that Lu's father confirmed his daughter's death when reporters visited the family home.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry and Consulate General in New York are not releasing the victim's name at the request of the family. But on Tuesday, Boston media quoted a Chinese Consulate General official as saying Chinese national Lu Lingzi was missing in the wake of the bombings that killed three and wounded more than 170 people.
