Investigators say 'no signs of foul play' in death of Los Osos woman

Nye County Sheriff's Office (NCSO)

Forensic investigators in Nevada say they do not believe foul play was involved in the case of a missing Los Osos woman whose body was found in the Nevada desert earlier this year.

Nye County Sheriff Anthony DeMeo says a pair of autopsies, crime scene details, and cell phone records show no signs of foul play related to the death of Margay Edwards.

The 27-year-old's last known contact with people was on September 14th near a dry lakebed, and she did not appear to be in any danger at the time according to witnesses.

The Sheriff's Office says Edwards' body was found eleven days later, on September 25. Her vehicle was recovered on October 4, after the Las Vegas Metro Police Department did an air search. It was located in a ravine, about three miles from where her body was found, in a difficult area to locate due to the terrain.

Edwards' cause of death remains inconclusive, but investigators say there was no criminal involvement.
