Philadelphia (CNN) -- Andrew Cattaneo is still in shock.
It's been only a day since his neighbor across the street, Melissa Ketunuti, was found dead in the basement of her row home Monday afternoon, her hands and feet bound, her body set on fire.
Standing in the doorway of his home, Cattaneo watched as police detectives returned to the scene Tuesday while news reporters huddled nearby trying to stay warm on the blustery January afternoon.
"She was very pleasant, very nice, very friendly and quiet," Cattaneo said, looking across the street. "It's very upsetting."
Although authorities were awaiting the final autopsy report, Philadelphia Police Capt. James Clark, homicide commanding officer, said at a news conference Tuesday morning that Ketunuti, a 35-year-old physician, apparently was strangled. There were no immediately obvious signs of sexual assault, Clark said.

To bad she didn’t have a handgun for protection.
I’d be going back to college years and guys that she turned down for a date. Someone held a big grudge.
Why would anyone with a future waste it in Philadelphia?
Why would anyone with a future waste it in Afghanistan? Iraq? Viet Nam? Korea? France? Germany? Some gawdaful malarial Pacific Island?
Yes, I know ... I'm calling Philthydelphia a war zone, and some folks might be upset that I'm insulting war zones ...
Drug Deal gone awry
Liberals want all of us to be disarmed, too.
It seems the lady IS a real doctor, and she doesn't appear to live in a "bad" neighborhood.
The death scene is obviously torture and evidence coverup.
The doctor looks Asian and her name is unusual to me.
The “City of Brotherly Love” is a crime-infested sh*t hole on the model of our recently admired and much-praised Kenya.
Wonder what happened in such a climate....
I really never knew anyone who’s future was behind them. Just sayin’.
There is true evil in the world.
For this we have a right to self defense, and 6 rounds often isn’t enough.
The "Center City" section is very middle/upper-middle class. The term "row house" does not mean "dilapidated slum house". In this context it just means a house that shares common walls with the neighboring house. She was a resident/research fellow, and was likely making good money, but would not be making huge money until after she passed her boards.
Looking at her dad in the picture, I'm guessing Hawaiian or some other flavor of Pacific Islander.
And it came up as strongly western Austria, specifically the region around Landeck, Austria.
Many of us don’t make big money even after passing boards and practicing for 25 years or so
