Police identify woman whose body was found in vacant St. Petersburg home

ST. PETERSBURG — The woman whose body was found Tuesday in an abandoned home at 405 Eighth Ave. N. has been identified as a prostitute who worked the Fourth Street corridor.

Police confirmed the identity of Kathleen M. Baur, 51, through fingerprints. The medical examiner has not determined a cause of death, and there were no obvious signs of trauma, police said.

Baur's sister reported her missing March 31 after she had not been seen for two weeks.

Officers found her body in the upstairs apartment of the two-story house while responding to a call about an odor coming from inside. She was partly clothed and had been dead for about a week, police said.
