(KSL News) -- Salt Lake police are still treating the death of a woman found in a garbage dumpster last week as suspicious. But they say there are no signs she was murdered.

Tests show the woman, Suzanne Maxwell, was not shot, stabbed or strangled.

Maxwell had a history of prostitution and drug abuse. Her family says she likely died of a drug overdose.

A toxicology report should be finished in six to eight weeks.
