CLEARFIELD -- All Tina Joann Trujillo had in her possession when she died was a loaf of bread and a jar of peanut butter.
Early Wednesday morning, Clearfield police identified Trujillo, 29, as the deceased female found at a vacant house the day before. Officers responded to the house, 139 E. Ross Drive, at 10 a.m. Tuesday and found her body on the floor.
"We didn't find any ID, and she didn't have anything with her," said Clearfield Assistant Chief Mike Stenquist. "She had a loaf of bread and a jar of peanut butter, so it looked like she had been living there."
Clearfield police sent photos of the body to officers in the Weber and Davis county jails.
Early Wednesday morning, a deputy at Davis County Jail recognized Trujillo in the photo and contacted Clearfield police, Stenquist said, and after a few more photographs were compared, they were sure it was the same person.
"She had been an inmate," Stenquist said.
According to court documents, Trujillo was charged three times between Oct. 4, 1999, and July 10, 2001, in 2nd District Court in Layton for driving on a denied license.
She was also charged with a third-degree felony of intent to distribute a controlled substance on Feb. 6, 2003, in 2nd District Court in Farmington. She was sentenced to 45 days in Davis County Jail on that charge.
After talking with the deputy from the Davis jail, Clearfield police contacted Trujillo's family members in Layton for confirmation.
Stenquist said Trujillo's family told police they had not had a relationship with Trujillo for years.
"They didn't give us a specific time period, but said it had been years that they hadn't been in close contact with her," Stenquist said. "It's kind of tragic."
Police suspect Trujillo was staying in the vacant house because she was homeless.
Stenquist said the preliminary investigation from the medical examiner's office did not indicate the cause of death. With no foul play being suspected, investigators will now wait for the toxicology report, which could take several weeks.
At first, Stenquist said, there was speculation the cold weather may have contributed to the death.
"The stove was on, and the oven was open and on," Stenquist said. "The house wasn't toasty, but it was warm enough where that wouldn't be an issue, so we don't suspect exposure."
Stenquist said officers went door to door in the neighborhood asking if anyone had seen the woman enter or leave the house, but no one had any information.
A neighbor discovered the body Tuesday when she was driving her children to school and noticed the front door of the vacant home open.
When she looked inside, she saw the body and called police, Stenquist said.
"We don't know why the door was open," Stenquist said. "It was fairly windy (on Tuesday) and maybe the wind blew it open."
Along with determining the cause of death, many other questions are left that police want to answer.
"I'm sure the family will have questions, so we will try to answer those and get as much information as we can," Stenquist said. "... kind of fill in the last few days of her life and see what was going on."
