What caused the death of 20-year-old Garrett Quotskuyva may never be known. An autopsy performed at the Forensic Science Center in Texas ruled the death undetermined, according to the Gila County Sheriff's Office.
Quotskuyva's decomposing body was found in a Round Valley wash in early August.
GCSO Det. George Ratliff said there were no signs of trauma such as gunshot or stab wounds. The autopsy report said there were no signs of strangulation either and a general drug screen was negative.
Quotskuyva had been on the run from law enforcement since October after his probation was revoked. Deputies suspected he may had been living in the area where he was found, but were unable to recover any of his clothes or belongings.
The sheriff's office is continuing to investigate the case.
