MORIARTY -- An autopsy report is revealing new details about the death of a woman whose body remained in a police impound lot for days.
The report shows that Tammie Cessna had signs of strangulation, but says medical examiners could not identify a definitive cause of death.
Cessna was reported missing in January. Moriarty police found her van at a motel, and four days after police impounded it, they found her body inside.
Police said it took so long to find the body because they were waiting for a search warrant.
Police arrested an acquaintance of Cessna after the discovery, but later said they didn't have enough evidence to charge him.
