Thriza Sweeten’s autopsy results were made public Wednesday afternoon by the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office, which is leading the ongoing investigation into the death. They say no arrests have been made and no charges have been filed, noting that additional forensic testing is still being conducted by a state police lab.

Sweeten was found Monday night in the Paulsboro home where she lived alone. Her daughter made the discovery when she went to check on her mother around 6 p.m.

Sweeten was last seen alive around 11 p.m. Sunday.
