(AP) Police have identified a woman whose body was found bound and burned inside a home in downtown Philadelphia.


Philadelphia police Chief Inspector Scott Small says firefighters responding to the home Monday afternoon found the woman's body on fire, with her ankles and wrists bound. Investigators say there was no sign of forced entry or anything taken from the home.


Officer Christine O'Brien, a police department spokeswoman, said Tuesday the victim has been identified as 35-year-old Melissa Ketunuti. O'Brien says the cause of death has not been determined. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.


Neighbors say Ketunuti was a doctor. Officials say the body was discovered by the woman's dog walker and that her face and upper body were so badly burned that she was unrecognizable.
