Suspicious death being investigated in Cedar Rapids

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Police in Cedar Rapids are investigating the death of a 42-year old woman.

Police say they responded to a medical call at 1300 Oakland Road Northeast, apartment #1505, at around 10:35 p.m. on Sunday.

Officers found 42-year old Laurie Runza dead inside the apartment.

Sergeant Cristy Hamblin says there are no obvious signs of foul play.  She says it is being called suspicious because there is no clear evidence of what happened to Runza.

Hamblin says Runza had no apparent medical conditions.

Runza's body was sent to the state crime lab for an autopsy.

Hamblin said they won't know the cause of death until a preliminary report comes back, which could take six weeks.
