Coroner: ‘No signs of trauma’ in Cambria woman’s death

NORTHERN CAMBRIA — The Cambria County coroner said there were “no signs of trauma” in the death of 30-year-old Amanda Sherry-Griffon, whose body was found Saturday in a wooded area of Susquehanna Township.

Cambria County Coroner Dennis Kwiatkowski said an autopsy was completed this morning and toxicology tests are pending — but could take weeks. In the meantime, officials will continue to investigate the death as a homicide, he said.

“Until we get all the results back … we’re at a standstill,” he said.

An affidavit of probable cause for a search warrant, submitted by state police, said when police arrived at Sherry-Griffon’s apartment along Holly Street Saturday afternoon they found the door to the apartment open.

It was empty, but there was “a large amount of blood” in the bathroom.

Funeral arrangements also are pending, Kwiatkowski said.
