LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police are reopening their investigation of the death of a cryotherapy spa employee in a cold chamber intended to treat pain and other ailments.

The announcement Wednesday came after police said Tuesday that an initial review of the death of Chelsea Patricia Ake-Salvacion (AH'-kay sal-vas-ee-OHN') found nothing suspicious and the case was closed.

Police Officer Jesse Roybal says there's still no immediate evidence of a crime.

The Nevada Division of Industrial Relations also said Wednesday that state authorities are reviewing the safety of commercial use of cryotherapy equipment.

Meanwhile, Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg (FYOU'-den-berg) says it'll take several weeks and blood toxicology results before he can say what killed Ake-Salvacion.

She apparently used a machine after hours Oct. 19 and was discovered dead the next day.
