EDMONTON -- The death of a 23-year-old woman whose body was found alongside a highway west of Edmonton has been deemed to be not suspicious by police.
The woman's name is not being released, nor are investigators clarifying the circumstances of her death.
In a Wednesday news release, they said their "investigation revealed that the death was not suspicious in nature.
"There are various factors that, as a whole, may have contributed to this tragedy."
The woman's body was reported to RCMP on March 29 after it was spotted lying in a ditch of the eastbound lane of Highway 16A near Spruce Grove. Mounties originally classified the case as a "sudden death."
