The body of Shirlev Small, 2832 Page St., was discovered Sunday morning on a lawn only a few doors from her southeast-side home.

Police said she suffered a fatal stab wound to the chest. There were also cuts on her face, according to a department spokesman. An autopsy was to be performed today to determined the exact cause of death.

Miss Small’s body was found shortly before 7 a.m. on a lawn in front of 2820 Page St., a short distance from her home.

“There have been a number of persons questioned, but no arrest has been made,” a department spokesman said today.

“The body was fully clothed and her purse was next to her. There was a stab wound to the chest, and several cuts on her face. There was nothing that indicates any sort of sexual molesting, and that is about all I can release at this time,” the spokesman added.

Miss Small was a senior at Pioneer High School.
