HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) – A body found inside a Huntsville police van parked outside headquarters has been identified as that of a 29-year-old woman whose relatives held a news conference demanding more information from law enforcement.

Police say an assessment by the Madison County coroner found no signs of foul play or trauma.

But an autopsy and toxicology analysis would be conducted this week to determine what killed Christina Nance.

An officer walking to a police car found Nance’s body in an old, unused Huntsville Police Department van parked outside the Huntsville Public Safety Complex on Thursday.

Relatives of Nance held a news conference Sunday in Huntsville demanding more information.
