According to the police, the woman’s death was not caused by criminal means. The announcement also says that during the police and forensic pathologist examination, unclear aspects that required further examination emerged.

The conclusion of the forensic pathologist is that the injuries sustained by the deceased did not lead to her death. No further information is known at this time.

The woman’s death in Reykjavík marks the second time in a week that a murder has been reported in Iceland, the previous one occurring in North Iceland on October 4th, and marks the fourth this year alone.
