PROVO, Utah – The investigation into the death of a Brigham Young University student whose body was found in Provo Canyon has turned up no evidence of foul play so far, Provo police said Monday.
The body of Camille Cleverley, 22, was discovered Sunday by searchers at the base of a 200-foot cliff, 10 days after she was last seen.
Utah County Sheriff James Tracy said it appeared she had made her way up a rocky talus slope halfway up Bridal Veil Falls, then followed a series of angled ledges to an outcrop where she fell. Her body was hidden by pine trees and heavy brush on the steep slope.
An autopsy was performed Monday, but the results will not be immediately released, Provo police Capt. Cliff Argyle said.
"Nothing we have found so far has pointed us toward foul play," he said.
A campus candlelight event Sunday night was turned into a memorial service attended by more than 1,000 people after her body was found that afternoon.
Mayor Lewis Billings had flags at municipal locations lowered to half-staff Monday in honor of Cleverley.
Cleverley, of Boise, Idaho, would have been a senior when classes started Sept. 4. She was majoring in marriage, family and human development at BYU's School of Family Life.
Cleverley was last seen riding her bicycle in Provo on Aug. 30. Police got a break in the case Sept. 6, when two people heard about the search for Cleverley and admitted stealing a bike that resembled hers from a rack near Bridal Veil Falls.
Before the discovery, the possibility that Cleverley might have been abducted chilled some students in this college town, 40 miles south of Salt Lake City.
Miranda Gomm, a sophomore from Texas, said it was a concern for her and her roommates.
"Everyone was been making sure they locked their doors more than usual because they were afraid someone had abducted her," she said.
