“I still am of the same opinion that I don’t believe there is foul play afoot here,” New York State Police Investigator Rick Haas said Monday.

Carolynn Weeks was found dead Feb. 19  “in proximity of her vehicle” in a remote area on Connecticut Hill. Her family last heard from her on Feb. 8.

Haas said officials are still waiting for results from a medical examiner and forensic pathologist.

He said it is normal for results to take weeks and that it could be another several weeks before a cause of death is determined.

“It’s not uncommon (to wait weeks),” he said.

According to Bangs Funeral Home, a service was held for Weeks on March 4 at Immaculate Conception Church. Her obituary can be read here.
