The Kosciusko County Coroner's Office has been unable to determine the cause of death of Aurora Shoemaker.  Shoemaker had been missing for more than a year, when her remains were found just north of Warsaw on Monday.

"The autopsy conducted this week was inconclusive as to the matter of Aurora Shoemaker's death," said County Coroner Michael Wilson in a written statement.  "Her remains are being sent to the University of Indianapolis for further analysis.  Further information may not be available for approximately 4 weeks."

 The Kosciusko County Sheriff's Department says they are continuing to investigate, and will not speculate if foul play was involved or not.
