SOUTH ROXANA, Ill. (KMOX) – It’s still not known what killed a Metro-East woman, found Saturday morning inside a U-Haul van.

The Madison County coroner’s office says an autopsy conducted on 42-year-old Frances Ragan of East Alton showed no indication of violence or trauma.

The moving van containing Ragan’s body was parked in the lot of a South Roxana business.

South Roxana Police Lt. Bob Coles says someone knows something about what Ragan had been up to, “We’ve been able to identify numerous people she was with between February 4th and 7th. We’re looking for them to come forward, talk to us, and help us further the investigation.”

The South Roxana Police Department number is 618-254-7460.
