Autopsy of remains found in Houston home offers clues

HOUSTON (AP) - An autopsy report says skeletal remains found in the wall of a Houston home earlier this year are consistent with the description of the 61-year-old woman who lived there before disappearing in early 2015.

The Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/2uhFdfC ) reports the autopsy results on the remains found in March were released last week. Summary results of the autopsy, published earlier in June, stated the cause and manner of death couldn't be determined.

DNA identification was pending, but nothing indicated the bones weren't those of Mary Cerruti.

The report says the remains were badly damaged by rodents. Investigator notes say the tenant found the bones after noticing a broken floorboard in the attic. The remains were in a space about 2 feet wide.

Police say they've seen no sign of foul play.
