Cause of woman's death still not known

Monday, October 20, 2003

NEW MADRID - The investigation into the death of a Marston woman is continuing.

New Madrid County Sheriff Terry Stevens said today that the autopsy report into the death of Rhonda Dunn was inconclusive. However, Stephens said, his department is still awaiting some lab reports, which may help determine the cause of death.

Dunn, 45, was found dead approximate 9:30 p.m. Thursday at her home in Marston. Stephens stated there was "no obvious cause of death that we can ascertain."

He said the woman apparently had not been dead more than 24 hours when her body was found.

The autopsy was conducted Friday.
