Parts of a woman's body were found in eight trash bags scattered over a wide area in northeastern Pennsylvania, authorities said Tuesday.

The first bag was found Tuesday morning near the Mount Pocono exit of Interstate 380 by a state road worker salting the highway. More remains were found later Tuesday along Interstate 80. Authorities said at an afternoon news conference that they were not sure if all of the body was recovered.

A head was recovered along I-380, Monroe County District Attorney Dave Christine said.

The woman's identity was not immediately determined. An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday
