An initial autopsy was unable to determine what killed an Egg Harbor Township woman found dead Thursday in Egg Harbor Township’s Cardiff section.

Amber Swigert, 29, was found dead within a mile of Davenport Elementary School and the Atlantic County Training Center for Special Needs Children.

An autopsy performed Friday was unable to determine the manner or cause of Swigert’s death, Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office spokeswoman Haleigh Walz said. A determination on whether it was a homicide is pending further testing and investigation.
