NORRISTOWN — Investigators continue to seek the public’s help in getting information on the death of Natalie Marella, who was discovered dead in a New Hanover field last August.

According to Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman and New Hanover Police Chief Kevin McKeon, authorities are still seeking information on “who Marella was with at the time of her death,” according to a release.

The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office completed its investigation on Marella, 26, from Ambler, in early January. That investigation determined that Marella died from a seizure disorder with “another significant condition” being a head injury.

Toxicology tests done on Marella turned up “no significant findings” and the manner of her death remains undetermined.

Anyone with pertinent information is asked to contact the New Hanover Police at 610-327-1150 or the Montgomery County Detectives at 610-278-3368.

A local farmer, Mark Slater, discovered Marella’s body near a cornfield on the 2400 block of Little Road around 10:20 a.m. Aug. 29, 2012.

Slater, at the time, told media that he’d seen tire tracks in the field near the body.
