PHILADELPHIA - Law enforcement sources say the body of a woman was found encased in cement in the basement of a vacant Philadelphia home.
The gruesome discovery was made by police last week as they were acting on a tip about human remains inside a home on the 5200 block of Burton Street in Frankford.
The woman's body was discovered inside a bag that was encased in cement in the basement of the abandoned home, according to a police source.
Authorities say they believe they know who the victim is, but they're still working to confirm her identity.
A source told FOX 29's Jennifer Joyce that police never received a missing report about the woman.
It's possible that her remains have been inside the home for up to eight years, a source said.
