    Philadelphia homicide detectives are investigating the death of a 25-year-old woman.

    Her nude body was found behind a vacant house at 2500 North Mole Street in North Philadelphia Friday morning.

    Police told NBC10 a neighbor reported hearing dogs barking, followed the sounds and found the body around 6 a.m.

    A snapped off belt was found a short distance away and investigators said the victim may have been strangled and dragged down an alley to the backyard of the vacant house.

    The victim has not been identified.
