In a Thursday tweet, MSP said an autopsy had not yet determined an exact cause of death pending toxicology results, which could take several weeks. It noted no signs of trauma were found.

Evans was last seen leaving a party at her mom’s home on East Evergreen Road near Stanton on New Year’s Eve. Family members were worried she might have harmed herself, they previously told News 8.
