Investigators also reviewed surveillance video that shows Kishayinew, 22, entering an alcove at the rear of a building in the 1500-block of 20th Street West where she was found dead at 10:30 a.m. CT on Jan. 1.

SPS officials said video observations from the area are consistent with witness information and the footage is not from St. Paul’s Hospital.

Police said that given this evidence and results of an autopsy completed on Jan. 5, the death was found to be non-criminal in nature.
