An investigation is underway in New York City after the sudden and mysterious death of a 17-year-old girl who stepped out of her home looking for her runaway cat only to be found dead on the front porch.

Yixuan Yin left her Fresh Meadows home late Sunday and never returned. After vanishing for hours, her family found her unresponsive and lying on the grass in front of the home.

Police said that surveillance video from the scene depicted the victim helping a neighbor with a piece of luggage, and then running after her cat toward a nearby road. Shortly later, she was heading home.

What added to Yin’s death mystery is that she was not suffering from any health condition and her body was not displaying any kind of trauma suggesting criminality.

An autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause of the teen’s sudden death.
