Her death was being investigated as a homicide after the body was found. A Pennsylvania State Police press release said her body was “left along the off-ramp.”
Landrith’s body was found by a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) worker who was working on snow removal. She had suffered from gunshot wounds to the head, neck, and throat, and did not have identification, according to the Philly Voice.
Receipts found with her body indicated she had recently travelled through Wisconsin and Indiana. She was identified by fingerprints found on the receipts. She did have a piece of crucial evidence in her leather jacket: the name and contact information for Rollins, who is the suspect in her murder case, police said.
She also had receipts with her that helped police build a timeline of her last days. They used the gas station and fast food receipts to obtain fingerprints and identify her body, and obtained surveillance footage from locations in Wisconsin and Ohio. There, she was seen on surveillance video with a man matching Rollins’ description, according to the Daily Item. A motive was not immediately released in the shooting.
