WASHINGTON CITY – The deceased woman found in a vehicle on Shinob Kibe Drive in Washington City Tuesday morning has been identified as 27-year-old Amber Hansen, of St. George.

The Washington City Police Department confirmed Hansen had been reported missing Monday night and was found in the Indian Springs subdivision Tuesday around 11 a.m.

While the official cause of death remains undetermined, WCPD Lt. Dennis Bailey said it did not appear to be suspicious.

An investigation into Hansen’s death is currently underway, though Ed Kantor, WCPD public information officer, said the police department is treating the death as a possible suicide.

    What’s not Suspicious about the person being dead with no apparent cause and why say its a possible suicide and taint his name! He could have been bitten by a poisonous, snake, spider, scorpion or one of many other causes but thats their assumption saves them time so they can chase some pothead around. God bless his family they can find closure

      Why would anyone think that a deceased 27 year old found in a vehicle to be suspicious?. A deceased 27 year old found in a vehicle seems like an everyday occurrence to me they probably just died of cardiac arrest or something you know at a ripe old age of 27. No wounds or anything hahhh nothing suspicious there! And I always read these articles where they say they are updated daily you but they go for years and never ever update anything.
