The body of a Tamaqua woman was discovered Saturday morning by firefighters in Jim Thorpe working to extinguish a brush fire, a relative of the woman said Sunday night.
State police have called the case a “homicide investigation.”
According to Donald R. Serfass of Tamaqua, it was the body of his niece, Angela Serfass Steigerwalt, 35.
“She grew up in Tamaqua and went to Tamaqua high school. She worked at Kraft Foods down in the Lehigh Valley. She worked in inventory control. She was very clean cut. She supported animal rights causes, anything having to do with the welfare of animals,” Serfass said.
