Death of Scranton Woman Ruled Homicide

SCRANTON, Pa. -- Scranton's police chief says he expects to release more information in the coming days about the death of Nina Gatto who was found dead in her home on Friday.

It doesn't look like a crime scene, but the apartment in north Scranton's Bangor Heights development is the scene of the city's first homicide in more than a year.

Scranton police detectives say Nina Gatto, 24, was found dead inside her home on Friday.

Police aren't saying much more, other than her death has been ruled a homicide and that they do not believe it was a random act.

The Lackawanna County coroner has not ruled on a manner of death, saying more testing is needed to make a determination.

Police have not made any arrests, but the police chief tells Newswatch 16 that detectives have been working the case around the clock since Friday.
