The Erie County Coroner’s Office positively identifies a frozen body found last Friday.

An autopsy confirms the body found on East 16th Street is 28-year-old Carrie Young of Erie.  Coroner Lyell Cook saying he estimates her body had been there for several weeks.  He says at this point there’s no visible cause of death. “It’s still an extremely questionable death and we’re going to keep working on it with police.”

Cook says it will probably be at least another month until all the tests are in.
