ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - State police say the body of a 23-year-old homeless woman was found near the New York State Museum in downtown Albany.

The woman is identified as Htee Paw. Troopers say she was found early Sunday by another homeless person. Cause of death was attributed to chronic liver disease, according to an autopsy by the Albany County Coroner’s office.

Police say Paw frequented the area and had drunk alcohol prior to her death.

Investigators are awaiting results of toxicology tests to determine her exact blood-alcohol content.

No foul play is suspected.

Paw is the second homeless person found dead in Albany since September. The body of 30-year-old Levi Bromley of Whitehall also was found behind the State Museum. It had been there for more than a week before it was discovered.
