The Allegheny County medical examiner's office said this morning it identified the woman found shot to death Wednesday morning in Wilkinsburg as 28-year-old Monica Proviano.
Her family came in early this morning to confirm her identity, according to the medical examiner's office.
Wilkinsburg police found Ms. Proviano, who was from the borough, early Wednesday morning with a gunshot wound to the head when they responded to the 300 block of South Trenton Avenue for a report that shots had been fired.
Allegheny County police had asked residents to help them identify the woman, because the damage done to her face was so severe they had trouble identifying her, Allegheny County police homicide unit Lt. Andrew Schurman said in a press release.
Her fingerprints did not match any on file, he added.
