MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Police on Friday still hadn't disclosed the name of the dead woman found stuffed inside a sleeper sofa here last week, but officers continued to work after hours to solve the slaying.
At one point Friday, it looked as if the victim's identity would be made public, but Martinsburg City Police Detective George Swartwood then told reporters he needed to spend time tracking down a new lead in the slaying.
Early Friday, reporters had been called to a news conference by Martinsburg police, who said they planned to release a picture of the dead woman in an attempt to get the public's help in identifying her.
