PHILADELPHIA, PA (WPVI) - The girlfriend of a high-profile Philadelphia Attorney was found dead Saturday in his house.

Police removed the body of a woman identified by sources as Julia Law.

The 26-year-old described herself online as a paralegal at Charles Peruto Jr's law firm. A maintenance man found Law naked in the bathtub.

The lawyer is said to have been at the Jersey Shore. Peruto, who is infamous for defending alleged mob bosses, wouldn't answer reporters when he arrived home. But in a text message to a local newspaper, he said he was blessed to have known her.

Homicide detectives are investigating because the cause of death isn't known.
