GARDINER — Authorities have identified the woman whose body was found off Diamond Point Road on Sept. 2 as Sine Tveit.
Tveit, 41, was described as a Sequim-area transient who camped a short distance from where her body was found, Clallam County Sheriff’s Office Chief Criminal Deputy Brian King said Friday.
An autopsy was conducted Wednesday to ascertain the cause and manner of death, King said.
The results of the autopsy were not available Friday.
The body was in an advanced state of decomposition when it was discovered by a passer-by on a trail near a home in the 400 block of Diamond Point Road near Gardiner Beach Road, King said.
“There were no obvious signs of traumatic death,” King said.
“There were no signs of homicidal violence; however, the exact cause of death is still pending.”
