VIENNA, IL - The Johnson County Coroner, David Rockwell identified the woman's body that was found in an SUV in The Vienna City Park Tuesday afternoon as 51-year-old Joy Manning.

Rockwell said after an autopsy, he does not suspect foul play, but won't be able to identify a cause of death until after a toxicology report. He said it should get results in four to six weeks. 

The Johnson County Sheriff's Department and the Illinois State Police did not return calls for additional information, but are leading the investigation. 

According to the Vienna Times, the Sheriff's Department said Manning was reported missing by her boyfriend earlier Tuesday.

Rockwell said two dogs were also found in the vehicle and were turned over to the Johnson County Animal Control.
