    Woman found dead and half dressed, pinned by window
    By Bill Bryan

    St. Louis police believe that a woman who was found dead Tuesday afternoon in a rear window in the 5400 block of Mimika Avenue had become wedged there while trying to burglarize a house and died of asphyxiation.

    The identity of the 36-year-old woman, who is from Lincoln County, is being withheld until here relatives can be notified. An autopsy is being conducted.

    Police said the woman had spent Monday at the house on Mimika, and on Tuesday morning she went on her way and homeowner went to work. The woman obviously returned, and broke out a kitchen window, unlatched it and tried to crawl through, police said. But the window had a second latch that permitted it to raise up only so far, and the woman became wedged and later died, police said.

    In her struggle to free herself, her pants came off, police said.

    The homeowner returned home about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and found the lower half of the woman's body protruding from the window.
