A woman whose body was found Tuesday afternoon outside a vacant home in the Rich Hill community has been identified.
On Wednesday afternoon, Lancaster County Deputy Coroner Jennifer Collins identified the woman as 36-year-old Kimberly Alger of Heath Springs.
An autopsy on Alger is scheduled for Thursday, Collins said in a written release.
Alger’s death is being treated as a homicide and Lancaster County Sheriff Barry Faile said Wednesday that the investigation into her death is continuing.
So far, authorities have released few details in the case.   
Deputies responded to a home in the 3800 block of Spirit Road just before 3 p.m. Tuesday. They found Alger’s body near the steps leading to the deck at the back of house, according to a Lancaster County Sherriff’s Office release.
Anyone with information about the case should call the sheriff’s office at (803) 283-3388.
