WASHINGTON, Ill. -- The Tazewell County Coroner is looking into the death of Cierra Smallwood, 20.

Smallwood was found in a home in the Washington area early Wednesday morning.

An autopsy was inconclusive as to a cause of death and toxicology testing is pending.

Court records show Cierra Smallwood was indicted earlier in March by a Peoria County Grand jury on a charge of possession of less than 15 grams of heroin.

The Illinois State Police are assisting in the death investigation.
