Real estate agent finds woman's body in vacant St. Petersburg house

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found on Friday in a vacant house.

Authorities are still trying to identify the woman, who was found at about 12:30 p.m. inside 2032 Sixth Ave. N. Police said she was discovered by a real estate agent who stopped by to check on the duplex, which was unlocked.

The woman, who showed signs of trauma to her upper body, appeared to have been dead for several days, police said. No other details were released.

The one-story home, flanked by Interstate 275 and hidden from street view by another house, was foreclosed upon in 2008, county records show. Property records list the owner as a California investment company.

James and Larry Davis, brothers who have lived on the street for a decade, said the house has sometimes been inhabited by homeless people, but they had not see any recent activity there.
