Deputies said her death is suspicious but they do not have enough evidence to confirm it was homicide.

Authorities said Hansen's body was found inside a camp trailer near 1502 N. and 2000 W. at about 7 a.m.

Weber County deputies said there is a history of domestic violence at the home.

The sheriff's office said Hansen and her boyfriend got into a verbal argument Monday night.

Detectives questioned her boyfriend, a 40-year-old man who has not been named, and released him Tuesday.

The medical examiner's office is investigating how the mother died.

Deputies said they found evidence of drugs at the scene.

Officials said results from the autopsy and toxicology should shed more light on this situation. Wednesday, Lt. Lane Findlay of the Weber County Sheriff's Office said the initial autopsy results were inconclusive, and there were no obvious signs of trauma.

Officials suspect a possible drug overdose, but toxicology reports are still pending.
