KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An autopsy was unable to determine what caused the death of an Olathe teen whose body was found in Kansas City, Kansas.

Olathe police on Tuesday said that the autopsy revealed 17-year-old Jasmine Mills had no injuries and said the cause and manner of death have not been determined.

Results of the autopsy are still pending final analysis, according to police.

Mills was last seen in the 100 block of South Parker Street in Olathe on June 27. She was reported missing on June 28, and her body was found on June 29 in the passenger compartment of a tractor trailer that belongs to an acquaintance.

The teen's sister told 41 Action News that she and Mills helped a family friend clean out the cab of a semi behind a grocery store in Olathe late Wednesday night. The family friend called Mills back and said that she had forgotten to do something. She left early Thursday morning to go back, and that's the last time she was seen, according to her sister.

Anyone with information about the investigation should call the Olathe Police Department at 913-971-6950 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
