    The Philadelphia Police Department has just released this update regarding a Kensington murder they think may be related to a string of strangling murders in the area:

    “The homicide victim from Wednesday, December 15, 2010, on the 100 block of East Tusculum Street has been identified as Casey Mahoney 27 year old female from the 100 block of Independence Road, East Stroudsberg Pa.  The cause of death is manual strangulation.”

    Lizz Fiedler is picking up this story and will have a report later on WHYY-FM and Newsworks.
