EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - The St. Clair County coroner has identified an East St. Louis woman found shot to death.
Coroner Rick Stone tells the Belleville News-Democrat on Wednesday that 29-year-old Amanda Hand was the woman found dead Tuesday in the middle of a street.
Police say she was a known prostitute.
Court records in St. Clair and Madison counties showed the Hand has not faced anything other than traffic tickets.
Authorities say the woman was shot within hours of her body being found.
