Authorities are still investigating the identity and cause of death of a woman found at a burned-out garage in Pasadena two days after the building burned.

The woman’s body was found by a private arson investigator who was probing the scene Tuesday, police said. It was not clear why fire crews did not find the victim when responding to the early morning blaze, which occurred Sunday in the 100 block of South San Marino Avenue.

Coroner’s investigators are still trying to determine the victim’s identity and the cause of death, officials said Wednesday.

A statement from the Pasadena Police Department released Tuesday evening called the death “suspicious.” Police said Wednesday the investigation was still ongoing and no new information was available.
