Philadelphia police discovered the decomposed remains of a woman in the basement of a Girard Estates home in South Philly on Thursday night. The woman was identified as a former missing teenager, who is suspected to be a victim of human trafficking.

A dead body was discovered Wednesday inside a tent along the Neshaminy Creek in Middletown Township, police said.

A resident of the area was reportedly searching for a lost pet when he observed a tent with a troubling odor coming from it, according to the Bucks County Courier Times.

The tent was located in an isolated wooded area off Exeter Court, police said. The body appeared to be decomposed.

Officials did not determine the identity or gender of the person found in the tent, but authorities do not suspect foul play was involved. The individual may have been living in the tent.

An autopsy was scheduled to take place on Thursday.
