Alaska State Troopers will not make public any information from the autopsy of a 13-year-old girl killed last week in Kake.
Spokeswoman Megan Peters says the official report is expected to be delivered to troopers today. But she says, quote, “We will not be releasing any details of it.”
The State Medical Examiner’s Office completed the autopsy Friday.
Mackenzie Howard’s body was found Feb. 5th at a Kake church. Troopers say her death is being investigated as a homicide. They will not discuss a murder weapon or most other aspects of the case.
Peters says releasing more information could compromise the integrity of the investigation.
She says at least five investigators traveled to Kake to secure the crime scene, gather evidence and conduct interviews. She says that effort continues.
