Cause of death not yet found for 46-year-old woman

No cause of death was determined from an autopsy completed Monday on a 46-year-old woman.

Coni Lee Shaw-Powell died Monday morning at Kadlec Regional Medical Center, said Benton County Coroner John Hansens.

She had been at the hospital since Dec. 11 after she was found unresponsive at a Pasco home. Shaw-Powell is suspected of having health complications, Pasco police said.

Hansens said the cause of death will have to wait on toxicology tests. Dr. Carl Wigren, a forensic pathologist from Seattle, performed the autopsy.

Shaw-Powell lived in the Tri-Cities from 1999 until March when she moved to Grangeville, Idaho, according to her death notice.

She worked as an optician at the Richland Walmart.
