A significantly decomposed body found in Warrington Township last week appears to be a female, but not much other information is known yet, according to the coroner's office.

York County Coroner Pam Gay said in a news release that the cause and manner of death for the body found in the first block of Kralltown Road about 6:20 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, are still pending.

When the body was found, the coroner's office said the gender and identity were pending additional testing. 

Following an autopsy Monday, Feb. 11, the coroner's office said it appears the body is a female, but her identity is pending additional testing. 

The body was significantly decomposed, according to the coroner's office, which said  Monday that no trauma was noted on the body.

It is unknown if the person had lived at the home on the property. No one appeared to be living there at the time the body was found, the release states. 

The coroner's office said additional testing will be conducted with help from the anthropology department at Mercyhurst University in Erie.
