According to local station WMUR, results from the autopsy are expected the same day.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young described the death as "suspicious" but would not elaborate or comment on possible suspects.

Dittmeyer's family released a statement saying they are "devastated but [want] to thank everyone for their support and [request] to be left alone at this time."

The 20-year-old Portland, Maine mother's body was found by divers in a retaining pond about a quarter-mile from where her car was found idling Saturday in the parking lot of Cranmore Mountain ski area in Conway, N.H., a town of 10,000 people.

The father of Dittmeyer's child is serving time in prison on an unrelated drug charge.

According to WBZ, police say Dittmeyer, who lives and works in Portland and has ties to Bridgton, Maine, last talked to family members at about 8 p.m. Friday by phone.
