Albany woman, 21, died from natural causes, coroner says

Early autopsy results indicate no foul play in death of Albany woman

ALBANY — An autopsy shows the death of a 21-year-old Albany woman Thursday was from natural causes, says Michael Fowler, Dougherty County coroner.

Raven Reeves was found to be unresponsive at her home on Sutton Place and taken by ambulance to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead around 9:30 a.m., Fowler said.

The autopsy, performed Friday, indicates that Reeves died from natural causes, with no indications of foul play, Fowler said. Further results are expected early next week when toxicology, histology and tissue sample tests are evaluated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Fowler said.

According to Fowler, Reeves was not known to have suffered a prolonged illness or to have had a history of medical problems.
