FARR WEST CITY, UTAH – October 6, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) – Investigators from the Weber County Sheriff’s Office said there is insufficient evidence to consider a woman’s ‘suspicious’ death in Farr West a homicide.
Officials issued a press release and said they have finished conducting interviews with the children and boyfriend of the deceased female in this case. The release said: “At this time, her death is still being considered suspicious but there is insufficient evidence to indicate it is a homicide.
“The boyfriend has been released and he will not be identified since he is not considered to be a suspect. The victim is identified as Britney LouAnn Hansen, 33, of Farr West. The investigation will remain open and active as investigators await the results of an autopsy that will be performed by the Medical Examiner’s Office.
“There was some evidence recovered at the scene that indicated Hansen’s death could have been contributed to a drug overdose, but her exact cause of death has not been determined. Results from the autopsy and toxicology should shed more light on this situation.”
According to WCSO, deputies responded to a call just after 7 a.m. Tuesday with a report of an unconscious woman at 1502 North 2000 West. When deputies arrived, they found Hansen deceased inside a camper.
Deputies said there is a history of domestic violence at the address and they were investigating claims the deceased woman and her boyfriend were involved in an argument last night. The 40-year-old boyfriend was then questioned by detectives.
The woman’s body will be sent to the medical examiner’s office where an autopsy will be performed to determine an exact cause of death.
