The Teton County Coroner will present findings from the autopsy on 22-year-old Gabby Petito Tuesday, about three weeks after her body was discovered and identified after a nationwide search.

A press release from the coroner's office said that Dr. Brent Blue will hold a press conference at 2:30 p.m. ET on the autopsy's ruling. The coroner initially ruled Petito's manner of death as a homicide, but until now has not provided any details on what may have caused her mysterious disappearance and death.

Petito was reported missing on Sept. 11, prompting a mass search and rescue effort that eventually uncovered her body in Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park. Authorities are still searching for Brian Laundrie, Petito's fiancé, who was named as a person of interest in her case after returning from a cross-country road trip without her.
