BIRDSBORO, Pa. - Authorities have identified the woman whose body was found in a small wooded area of Berks County on Wednesday.
The victim was identified Thursday as Michelle Amos, 49, of Robeson Township, according to Pennsylvania State Police.
Amos' body was found just after 11 a.m. Wednesday in the 300 block of West Main Street/Route 724 in Birdsboro, about 2-1/2 miles from the home where the married mother of five children lived.
State police are calling her death suspicious, and investigators said they hope neighbors may have seen something that can help with the case.
"It's not an isolated roadway. 724 coming in from the west into Birdsboro," said PSP Trooper David Beohm, a public information officer for Reading-based Troop L. "There's some businesses there. "If anybody saw anything, even if you think it's not important at all, please call us and let our investigators decide it's not important information for us to have."
State police are asking anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area to call 610-378-4011.
