2 Year Old Found Dead in Woods by Dog Walker

Two-year-old’s body found just 40 minutes after she was reported missing being treated as murder.

Adrionna Williams, of Wilkinsburg, was discovered dead in a neighboring suburb about 40 minutes after her family reported her missing Sunday, Allegheny County police Lt. Andrew Schurman said. She would have turned 3 next month.

A dog walker found the girl’s body in a wooded ravine in Swissvale at around 7:45 p.m. Adrionna’s family had reported her missing in Wilkinsburg at about 7:05 p.m., about 30 minutes after she was last seen alive, Schurman said.

“The investigation is ongoing and at this stage we do not believe the child was abducted by a stranger,” Schurman said in a news release, without elaborating. Police have not identified or charged any suspects.

The Allegheny County medical examiner’s office was conducting an autopsy Monday, but results weren’t immediately available. Nonetheless, police were treating her death as a homicide, Schurman said.

Police didn’t immediately say how far Adrionna’s body was found from her home. But Schurman told KDKA-TV: “We do not believe the child walked there from her Wilkinsburg home. It’s too far. We believe the child was placed there after her death.”

Police are interviewing friends and relatives of Adrionna, trying to piece together her last hours alive and to determine what happened in the time between when she was last seen and her body was found, Schurman said.

The street next to the ravine where Adrionna was found has been closed to vehicles for some time but remained open to pedestrians, police said.
