The autopsy done by pathologist Dr. Eslyn Mc Donald Burris found that the 51-year-old mother of two had been beaten on the head, stabbed about the body, and her throat cut.
On Saturday, fire officials had confirmed that the charred remains of the host of Point Blank aired on CCN TV 6, was found in the bedroom of her home in St. Augustine, east of here.
