Body of 2-year-old girl found ‘dumped’ in woods near Pittsburgh

A dog walker found the body of a two-year-old girl from Pittsburgh on Sunday night in woods.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the girl as Adrionna Williams.

County homicide detectives said the girl’s body was found just before 8 p.m. in a shallow ravine near Chalmers Street, a road that has been closed to cars for some time but is accessible by foot.

Swissvale police Chief Greg Geppert said he was told the girl’s family said she had walked away from the house, but police do not think the girl walked alone to the spot where her body was found and that she may have been taken there after she died.

Investigators also do not believe the girl had been abducted by a stranger and they are treating her death as a homicide.

‘At this point in the investigation we do not believe the child walked to the location where she was discovered,’ Allegheny County homicide Lt. Andrew Schurman said to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The autopsy was started on Monday, and testing will continue through the week.

Adrionna’s family reported her missing to Wilkinsburg police about 7:05 p.m., telling officers she was last spotted alive about 6:30 p.m.

Less than an hour later, a woman who was walking her dog spotted the little girl’s body.

There were no signs that a violent crime occurred where Adrionna’s body was found.

Anyone who heard or saw something suspicious is being asked to contact Allegheny County police.

The investigation is ongoing.
