MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A young woman’s body was found in Martinsburg Thursday.  Now Martinsburg Police say they have a suspect in custody in connection to her death.

The woman was identified as 22-year-old Hannah Wilson. She was found deceased sometime on June 14 in the area of Exchange Place in Martinsburg, a remote location just west of the North Queen Street overpass.

After Wilson’s body was discovered, an investigation began.

The Martinsburg Police Department ruled the woman’s death to be a homicide by a gunshot wound.

Authorities were able to develop a suspect during the course of the investigation. Warrants were obtained for Zekhi Pairidaeza, an acquaintance of Wilson.
