An autopsy will be conducted by the medical examiner's office to determine the cause of death of a woman found yesterday inside a dumpster at the Whitehall Apartments housing project in Frankford.
The woman, identified last night by relatives as Vivian Buxton, 29, of Briggs Street near Tackawanna, had no visible signs of injury, police said. She lived less than a mile from the project.
"I recognize her, but I don't know her name," Tottie Daniels, a resident of the project, said a short time after the body was found. "I see her walking through here sometimes, but I don't know her name."
