A former Niagara Falls woman whose body was discovered Monday at a Las Vegas construction site was strangled, the Clark County coroner's office said Wednesday.
Theresa Insana, 26, a casino sales executive, was the subject of a search over the weekend. Her body was found near a drainage culvert less than 10 miles from her home in Summerlin, Nev.
Her last known contact was an Oct. 26 telephone conversation with relatives here, according to the Associated Press. Insana's keys, purse and cell phone were left at her home, and police say there were no signs of forced entry.
Construction workers found her body while working on a drainage culvert Monday.
At her home near Sahara and Town Center in Las Vegas, the front steps are adorned with flowers, prayer candles and a balloon with the words "I love you."
