Bryn Mawr Woman's Death Not Suspicious, Police Say

According to police, Cynthia Pernock had been dead "an extended amount of time" before her body was discovered.


Radnor Police are saying that the death of a woman in her home on Portledge Drive in the Bryn Mawr section of the township was not suspicious and involves no threat to public safety.

According to Lt. Christopher Flanagan, Cynthia Pernock, a resident of Portledge Drive, a cul-de-sac off of South Roberts Road, had been dead "an extended amount of time" before her body was discovered on Friday, Sept. 7. The police were contacted by someone who was trying to get in touch with Pernock.

One of two dogs in the home was discovered dead as well, Flanagan said.

Police are waiting for a report from the coronor about the time and cause of Pernock's death. They have made contact with her family.

Mainline Media News should be more careful about publishing photos of the deceased person's home with their house number visible until after the police name her. From the photo, I was able to find out her name in 30 seconds with some google searches.

Perhaps, more importantly - how could a member of our community die in this tragic way? Shame on us for insulating ourselves in our cable/internet central air conditioned homes and not realize that we have not seen a neighbor....I am just as guilty, but let this be a wake up call to the rest of us. NO ONE should ever die alone. Kudos that you were able to determine who it was in a google search - maybe we should get off the computer and get on our feet and check in on those around us - especially those that live alone.
