SCRANTON, Pa. -- State police are investigating the death of a woman who was found along Interstate 81 in Scranton Saturday morning.

There is no word how she ended up on the side of the highway.

An autopsy is scheduled to determine how she died.

    “She was badly hurt after coming out of a vehicle” ……. What the hell kind of journalistic writing style is this? I don’t think I’ve ever read a more obscure sentence in news writing.

      Now how can you criticize the journalist’s writing? REREAD THE STORY! Bill was simply quoting the coroner you fool. If you have a beef, take it up with the coroner. But you might want to hurry in doing so, he’s based out of Lackawanna county so resignation before week’s end is a real possibility!

        He wasn’t quoting the coroner dbag if he was quoting him he would have used quotation marks. Elohssa!

        Hmmmm… Somebody in the new administration trying to get the coroner’s job? That’s not the person who needs to put in their resignation, now is it?
