Autopsy results were inconclusive in the death of 46-year-old Mila Riggio, a well-known Wood River Valley woman who died earlier this week.

Blaine County Coroner Russell Mikel said Thursday, following the autopsy conducted Wednesday, that he's not able to determine at this point if Riggio died from drowning or from some other cause.

Riggio was found dead in a hot tub about 10:30 a.m. Monday at Upper Board Ranch, 10 miles west of Ketchum.

"We didn't get any definitive results, so we're going to have to wait for the toxicology report," Mikel said. Results from those tests won't likely be available for at least a week, and could take up to a month, he said.

Mikel said earlier that there is no indication of foul play.

Riggio, a mother of two, was known in the valley for her participation and leadership in numerous community organizations and events. She was executive producer for Plum Sun Valley Television.

A memorial service is scheduled for 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 12, at Trail Creek Cabin in Sun Valley.
