FORTY FORT, PA – When Bill Bruch first saw the smoke rising, he knew something wasn’t right.

The 45-year-old Kingston resident who works at Edwards Garden Center Landscaping walked toward the smoke and realized it was coming from a burning Jeep Liberty that had stopped at the far end of a lot used to store dirt and mulch.

“I had a bad feeling,” Bruch said. “I got sick to my stomach as soon as I saw the car up in flames like that.”

The bad feeling proved prescient a short time later when a police officer broke open the driver’s side window and found a woman dead in the seat.

Body Unnoticed In Pottstown Park For 8 To 12 Hours

Editor’s note:  It’s rather hard to believe that a dead body could be a few hundred feet away from Borough Hall, the Brick House and in view of High Street and nobody noticed?  Is the homeless problem so bad that we just ignore someone lying on the ground in a public place?  If the woman died where she was photographed, how could she have been there that long and nobody thought something was wrong?

POTTSTOWN, PA — The woman whose lifeless body was found lying near the fountain in Smith Family Plaza Thursday evening has been identified by the county coroner who said she was likely there for 8 to 12 hours before someone alerted authorities.

Dr. Walter I. Hofman said the woman has been identified as 49-year-old Cynthia Atkinson, believed to be homeless.  Hofman said no next of kin has been identified.
