JENKINS TWP. - Authorities are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found near her home along Westminster Road in Jenkins Township.
The victim was identified as 65-year-old Jean Darsky.
Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis said detectives from her office along with Jenkins Township police are investigating.
“At this point it’s leaning more toward a hit and run,” Salavantis said.
Investigators are trying to confirm whether the woman was walking home after being dropped off from church late in the afternoon, Salavantis said.
An autopsy will be done Monday to determine the manner and cause of death.
