Authorities on Friday said they were continuing their investigation into the death of a Harold Washington College student whose body was found decomposing in a Pilsen neighborhood apartment this week.

Michelle Manalansan, 29, was last seen wearing a pink jogging suit near her North Loop residence, in the 300 block of East South Water Street, on Feb. 9, according to a missing person alert issued at the time.

Her body was found Sunday in an apartment in the 1400 block of West Cullerton Avenue, authorities said. She was inside a plastic air mattress that had been cut open, a police report stated.

A Monday autopsy seeking a cause of death was inconclusive.
