The Sheriff's department says investigators are still trying to determine the exact cause of death of 18-year-old Dakota Lunceford, whose body was found in Mesilla last week.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Kelly Jameson says Lunceford had relatives in Alamogordo and that he was last seen alive there on July 28 but that it's not known where he last lived.

Lunceford's remains have been sent to the state Office of the Medical Examiner in Albuquerque for further investigation.
