Stevensville, Md. - A source tells ABC2 an autopsy done on Robin Pope's body turned up no obvious signs of trauma that would explain how the Stevensville woman died.
Pope's autopsy wrapped up late last week. As ABC2 first report, it was conducted by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Maryland, with help from well-known forensic anthropologist Dr. William Rodriguez. Rodriguez was a defense expert in the trial of Casey Anthony.
After examination, Pope's body was released to her family so they could cremate her remains and carry-out a service and interment, which took place Tuesday morning in Queen Anne's County.
Maryland State Police spokesman Greg Shipley wouldn't comment about what the medical examiner found during the autopsy, which he said is on-going. But Shipley did say, "Investigators are still searching for the cause and manner of death".
Shipley says there has been no final ruling from the medical examiner's office, but he indicated samples were taken and more tests are being conducted. Those tests include toxicology, which could indicate whether anything out of the ordinary was in Pope's system on the night she died.
There's been no time frame provided for how long those additional tests will take or when a final ruling will be issued.
