GREENSBURG- Authorities have released the name of a woman found dead in the burned remains of a home recently.
Monday, they identified the body of the 39-year-old as Marsha Allen. It was still not clear what caused her death, which has been classified as a homicide by the St. Helena Parish Sheriff's Office.
The house burned just about to the ground. Only the brick chimney and a few walls were standing after the blaze a week ago.
The house was located on Highway 1043.
