More tests ordered for woman found dead in lot

Following an error in the initial toxicology report, more tests are required for a woman found dead in a dirt lot.

The initial autopsy was performed on Kimberly Eglet, 46, of Kingman on Dec. 26 by the Mohave County Medical Examiner.

There was an error in the initial toxicology report, so more tests were required, Kingman Police Sgt. Rusty Cooper said. Detectives have been calling every couple of days to see if the results are in, he added.

Cooper did not provide an estimate for when the results from the latest tests would be completed.

The KPD found Eglet unresponsive around 9 a.m. on Dec. 22 in the 4000 block of Stockton Hill Road. They had responded to the scene following the report of an abandoned vehicle, next to which Eglet was found.

She was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Foul play is not suspected in her death, Cooper said.
