WEST JORDAN — An autopsy of a woman whose body was found near West Jordan Elementary School Wednesday did not find any signs of injury that would have caused her death.

Skye Schooley, 33, was discovered dead about 6:45 a.m. on a sidewalk near 7250 S. 2370 West. West Jordan police said she was wearing a T-shirt and jeans and was not dressed for the snow and cold weather.

Although an autopsy on Thursday by the Utah State Medical Examiner's Office was inconclusive about Schooley's cause of death, West Jordan Police Sgt. Joe Monson said foul play is not suspected and police are not looking for any outstanding suspects.

The autopsy did find "some hypothermia," Monson said. The medical examiner will now wait for toxicology test results to be completed, which could six to eight weeks, to try and determine a cause of death.

Schooley, who was released from the Utah State Prison on Dec. 8, had been staying with family members who lived closed to where her body was found.
