The Medical Examiner has performed an autopsy on a woman's body found in Vista.

However, it could be weeks before the cause of death is determined, as the office waits for lab results.

The body was found Monday afternoon behind the E-Z Express Laundromat near North Santa Fe Drive and East Bobier Drive. The laundromat owner was taking out the trash when he discovered the body near the Dumpster.

The woman’s body was wrapped in plastic and covered with trash. Officials said the body showed no obvious signs of trauma.

Now, sheriff's deputies are looking at surveillance video from the laundromat to figure out how the body got there.

Detectives aren't calling this a homicide just yet.

"At this point, we're conducting a death investigation. We don't know if this is foul play necessarily. Don't know what led to her death. Could be a natural death and somebody just put her back there. We just don't know,” Lt. Glenn Giannantonio said.

The woman’s identity has not been released.
