LAS VEGAS — A police spokesman says foul play isn’t suspected in the death of a 59-year-old woman whose body was found last month in a remote part of the Gold Butte National Monument in Nevada.

Las Vegas police Officer Aden Ocampo-Gomez said Tuesday that police are not investigating the death of Lorann King.

The Clark County coroner on Monday identified King and said the cause of her death was pending.

King’s body was discovered July 23 near Devils Cove Road, several miles off State Route 170 near Bunkerville.

That’s a hamlet about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

The National Weather Service logged a heat wave in the area at the time, with daytime temperatures for several days before the discovery averaging about 108 degrees Fahrenheit (42 Celsius) in nearby Overton.
