A Philadelphia Medical Examiner is conducting an autopsy on the woman whose body was found bound and burned inside her house in downtown Philadelphia.

Firefighters responded to the home on Monday afternoon, and found the woman's body on fire, with her ankles and wrists bound. Police said there were no signs of forced entry or anything taken from the house.

Officer Christine O'Brien, who is a police department spokesperson, said that the victim has been identified as 35-year-old Melissa Ketunuti.

Jeff Moran, who is a spokesperson for the coroner's office of the city, said that the autopsy was being conducted on Tuesday.
