West Virginia Police aren't ready to say definitely whether a body they found in a crawl space is that of a missing Marshall University student.

Police say forensic investigators are taking another look at evidence before they draw any conclusions.

Authorities plan to hold a news conference tomorrow with details of their investigation into the disappearance of Leah Hickman, who vanished December 14th. They found the body in a crawl space of a common laundry room in Hickman's apartment building Friday while searching for other evidence.

Few details have been released about the investigation, though the police chief has said there are no suspects.
