Investigators have determined how a Ladd woman died, but are not releasing the cause because the investigation is ongoing.

Deborah Dewey's body was found at a vacant home in Standard, Illinois on September 12, twenty days after she was first reported missing.

Clifford Andersen was arrested the next day and charged with concealing a homicide.  Police say Andersen wrapped Dewey's body in a blanket, bound with duct tape and rope, and buried it in a shallow grave.

Andersen is Dewey's brother-in-law.  His preliminary hearing is scheduled for November 29.
