Police believe she was killed where her body was found. No one has been arrested in connection with the crime.

The woods are behind a department store in an area that is in Northwood, where that neighborhood ends and Juniata begins. Frankford Avenue is a few blocks to the east.

Friends and family said they didn’t know where Cordova was residing at the time of her death.

The Citizens Crime Commission is administering a $5,000 reward posted by the Justice 4 Kyra Coalition and a $20,000 reward posted by the city.

Information should be called to the Crime Commission tip line at 215–546-TIPS or the Philadelphia Police tip line at 215–686-TIPS. ••
