Kosciusko County Coroner Michael Wilson issued this statement on the investigation into the death of Aurora Shoemaker, 18: "The autopsy conducted this week was inconclusive as to the matter of Aurora Shoemaker's death. Her remains are being sent to the University of Indianapolis for further analysis. Further information may not be available for approximately four weeks".
