The Lehigh County coroner is awaiting results of toxicology tests before ruling on the cause of death for a woman whose body was found in a basement. Allentown Assistant Police Chief Ronald Manescu said before Tuesday's autopsy that the death of 51-year-old Maria Cintron-Osorio was labeled suspicious until further investigation.

Cintron-Osorio's body was found in the basement of her Allentown home. Police were called to the home before dawn Tuesday to investigate an odor and found the body in the basement.

Manescu says he believes the person who called police had been staying in the home.
