PASCO, Wash. -- We now know the name of the woman found dead outside of a Pasco home.

The Franklin County Coroner says she's 22 year old Magdalena Velasco Garcia.  It happened around 3:00 PM on the 2700 Block of Glendive Court.

Police say a man, also in his 20's, was taken into custody. He is related to the victim, but police won't say exactly how.

We talked to neighbors and they say the two are brother and sister.

"A man on his bike came here asking for help from me and my husband, we were the only ones outside. My husband then ran over there to see what happened and that's when he saw the young woman on the ground. He then called 911 and the police quickly arrived" said Eunice Fuerra, a neighbor.

An autopsy is schedule for Saturday afternoon.
