Police identify body found near Masten Park


BUFFALO, NY-- Buffalo Police homicide detectives have identified the woman whose body was found near Masten Park.

Police say Jerald Goldsmith, 52, of Buffalo, was found on the stairs leading to the park around 8 a.m. Wednesday.

While her death has been ruled a homicide, police are not releasing information as to what caused her death.

However, a police source tells 2 On Your Side that detectives are closing in on a suspect. Another source says the woman likely knew her attacker, so police do not believe this was a random attack.

A source said she was assaulted and left for dead on the steps.

A friend of the family told 2 On Your Side she was well-liked and confirmed reports that she worked an overnight shift. However, it's unclear why she was in the area when the attack happened.
