A Fox Lake woman was found dead Tuesday morning in Chicago's East Ukrainian Village.

Chicago Police officers say they responded to a call of lifeless female in her 20s shortly after 7 a.m.

Amanda Pucci, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene on the 1000 block of North Hermitage, at 7:20 a.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

An autopsy conducted Wednesday was inconclusive pending further studies, a medical examiner's official said, and it could be up to two months for further toxicology results.

Chicago police have opened a death investigation, Officer Ana Pacheco said.

"There were no apparent signs of trauma, so it's an ongoing area central investigation," Pacheco said.
