The investigation into a Quincy woman's death continues.

According to a press release issued Monday by the Quincy Police Department, the laboratory results from the autopsy of Nancy Streitmatter have been provided to Adams County Coroner James Keller, and a copy has been given to the QPD. The coroner will provide a copy of the report to the forensic pathologist, who conducted the autopsy. The department expects the pathologist's report to be completed in the next two weeks.

Streitmatter's remains were found Oct. 8 in the debris of a fire at 219 Oak in Quincy. A five-alarm fire on Oct. 7 damaged Salvage Lumber Co., an antique wood restoration shop. Business owner Rick Dulaney said the fire started in an addition at the rear of the building, and Quincy Fire Chief Joe Henning said the remains were found in that part of the building.

Police are treating the death as a homicide. The cause of the fire has not been determined.
