An autopsy performed Monday found no evidence that a weapon or physical force caused the death of a 35-year-old woman discovered on the Oak Leaf Trail early Sunday morning.
The woman, Linda M. Pemma, 35, of Laona, was last seen leaving the Indian Summer Festival in Henry Maier Festival Park about 6 p.m. Saturday. She was found on the bike and walking path south of E. Brady St., roughly in the 1600 block of Prospect Ave.
The trail is used regularly by bikers and walkers, and some of them have raised fears about safety on the path in light of the death. Police emphasized that nothing points to a crime in Pemma's death.
Police are asking anyone who had contact with her or saw her to call Milwaukee police at (414) 935-7411.
