Followup: Jill St. Onge autopsy report out; family “still waiting”

An e-mail inquiry early this morning led to the realization four weeks have passed since our last report on the status of the mysterious death of Jill St. Onge, the 27-year-old West Seattleite who died suddenly in Thailand in early May while on an extended visit there with her fiance’. Ms. St. Onge’s family hasn’t posted an update on the “About Jill” website since late May, but we found a Thailand news story from mid-June that doesn’t appear to have received U.S. coverage so far: The Phuket Gazette reported June 13 that an autopsy report had been released regarding her death and that of another foreign tourist who’d been staying at the same guest house. Its findings were described as “inconclusive,” while ruling out food poisoning, which had briefly been suspected early on. After reading that, we found an e-mail address for a member of Ms. St. Onge’s family, sent a note, and just received this response:

Yes, we have received the autopsy report. However, we are still waiting for the official police report as well as the environmental report being performed by the Thai health department. We are hoping to tie the environmental investigation to the findings of the autopsy.

Thank you,
Marlin St. Onge (Jill’s Father)

Ms. St. Onge, who’d worked at Shadow Land in The Junction, died just a week before she and fiance’ Ryan Kells were scheduled to return to the U.S.
