Formal identification of the body was continuing but authorities believe it was Ildiko Krajnyak (IL-di-koh KRY-nyak), a licensed cosmetologist, who owned the spa. In addition, investigators said they recovered materials at the scene that led them to believe it was not an accident. "At this time we ruled out the potential of this being an accident due to the condition of the victim".

The two customers injured underwent surgery Wednesday and were expected to survive.

A woman was killed and three other people were injured in the blast.
