CLEARWATER — Investigators have confirmed the identity of the woman whose body was found near the Pinellas Trail Saturday as Lydia Ann Tross.
Tross, 41, was reported missing Tuesday morning from her residence at 2075 N Highland Ave.
Her badly decomposed body was discovered by a man and his grandson, who were picking flowers Saturday afternoon. Authorities were not initially able to determine her race or age, only gender. The cause of death has not yet been determined, though Clearwater police say the circumstances are suspicious.
An autopsy was performed Sunday but the results were inconclusive. Clearwater Police spokesman Rob Shaw said they hope to have more answers Monday.
Anyone with information about Tross' whereabouts before or after the time she was reported missing should call (727) 562-4242.
