Jill Greninger was working at food processing firm Economy Locker Storage Company in Pennsylvania.

There were no eyewitnesses on hand who saw how she fell but one employee said they heard a noise and then found Greninger's body in the grinder. Lycoming County coroner Charles Kiessling Jr. confirmed her death.

"We talked to the person who found her", Kiessling told ABC News.

For two hours Raper's legs were trapped in the machine before he was freed, He died the next day from his injuries.

Another employee at the plant reportedly found the victim, whose name is not being released until family members have been notified.

Kiessling added that she was standing on a set of stairs on wheels at the time of the accident, and that the grinder was about six feet off of the ground.

The associate said that Kelly wanted the girl to come to his studio and "be in a video that he was making", the suit claims. The "star struck teen" believed she was going to be in a music video and agreed to meet Kelly.

The worker immediately called first responders, but Greninger was already dead by the time they arrived to the scene.

Jill was described by friends as "an fantastic person" who "touched so many lives".

But it's still not clear what caused the accident at the Economy Locker Storage Company in Muncy.

Occupational Safety and Health Administration - a division of the U.S. Department of Labor - told ABC affiliate WNEP that it was investigating the woman's death. The company has not yet issued a statement regarding Greninger's death.

"My heart goes out to everyone who is affected by this", a neighbor of the victim told WNEP.
