In a statement today, Kosciusko County Coroner Michael Wilson said, “The autopsy conducted this week was inconclusive as to the matter of Aurora Shoemaker’s death. Her remains are being sent to the University of Indianapolis for further analysis.” He said it could be up to a month before any additional information is available. Evidence found at the scene suggests foul play was not involved in her death.
Skeletal remains were located Sunday in a wooded area along CR 175 East, just across from Suburban Acres Mobile Home Park in Warsaw. Shoemaker, 18, was last seen in that mobile home park on Aug. 16, 2012, when she went for a walk and never returned home.The remains were found by youth who were playing in the woods and were positively identified as Shoemaker’s on Monday night.
