El Paso police have identified a woman who died over the weekend but say it may take several weeks before they know what caused her death. Police found the body of 41-year-old Bertha Alicia Ortiz on the curb outside her South El Paso apartment Saturday.
An autopsy was done today but it may take six to ten weeks before toxicology results come back. Those should reveal the cause of death. Police would not say whether or not they suspect foul play.
