Body found in Allentown; death investigated as being 'suspicious'

Suspicious death victim identified

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Allentown police and the Lehigh County district attorney are investigating a suspicious death.

Shirley A. Dileo, 60, of Allentown, was found Sunday at her home in the 500 block of West Chew Street in Allentown around 5 p.m. Sunday, according to the coroner's office.

"I live right there. I think probably everyone's a little nervous, or a little worried," said one neighbor, identified only as Kevin. "You know, Allentown's getting to be a tough town anymore, for everybody."

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday to determine the exact cause of her death.
