A second autopsy has failed to pinpoint the cause of death of an Illinois State University student whose body was found in a burned-out Mississippi chicken house in October.

Normal, Ill., police lieutenant Mark Kotte said Friday that investigators will now seek further forensic tests in an effort to determine how 21-year-old Olamide Adeyooye died. He didn't know who might conduct the tests or when they might be done.

Mississippi authorities said their initial autopsy was also inconclusive. Adeyooye was last seen Oct. 13 at a video store in central Illinois. Her body was found Oct. 21 in Mississippi.

A 27-year-old man police have named as a suspect in Adeyooye's death is being held in McLean County, Illinois, jail on unrelated charges.
