Fayette County authorities are investigating the Thursday death of a rural Mulberry Grove woman.

Fayette County Coroner Bruce Bowen said 22-year-old Codie Zinkgraf was found unresponsive in her home by a friend at approximately 9:20pm Thursday.  Mulberry Grove first responders and Bond County EMS responded to the home and transported Zinkgraf to Fayette County Hospital in Vandalia.  Bowen pronounced Zinkgraf dead at 10:26pm Thursday.

An autopsy was performed Friday at St. Anthony's Memorial Hospital in Effingham.  Zinkgraf's death remains under investigation by the Fayette County Coroner and Bowen said the death appears to be of other than natural causes.

As of Sunday, the Coroner's office was awaiting lab results.
