Posted on Monday, March 31, 2014 5:13pm

Authorities are now identifying a woman whose body was found in an Oxnard alley, but the cause of death remains a mystery.

The body of Cynthia Ledesma was found around 11:30 Saturday morning on the 4900 block of South C Street.

Police, and paramedics responding to reports of a woman not breathing tried to revive the 56 year old Oxnard woman, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office says there were no signs of trauma, and no obvious indication as to the cause of death.

Toxicology results which could help pinpoint the cause of death are now pending.
