The death of a woman whose body was found in an Antelope storage unit last month is no longer being investigated as a homicide, authorities say.
The Sacramento County Coroner's Office has not determined the cause of death. However, the woman's body showed no signs of trauma, and the investigation has yielded no evidence of foul play, said Sacramento County Sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos.
The woman, identified as Emily Bettinger Gladney, 24, of Roseville, was found July 1 after a man approached two Sacramento police officers in Natomas and directed them to her body.
Police, later joined by sheriff's deputies, raced to a storage unit on Blackfoot Way in Antelope and found the woman's body.
Because of the unusual circumstances and his knowledge of the body's location, 38-year-old Thomas Bennett initially was arrested on suspicion of murder but later was released after the investigation yielded no evidence he was responsible for her death, Ramos said.
