The fire was located on the exterior of the building. The woman’s remains were discovered once the fire was extinguished.

Neither the fire, nor the woman’s death are being considered suspicious at this time, however the woman has not yet been identified.

Police said that there are indications that she may have been unhoused at the time of her death. Autopsy results show that she had a history of ankle surgery with a plate and pins her left ankle. She also had gold crowns in her lower right and left jaw.

She was wearing black Columbia boots, size 9.5, with black fur around the top and a purple portion on the heel and sole.
