Police officials have released the cause of death into the murder of mother of three, Saadia Byron, whose semi-nude body was discovered in a shallow stone grave near her home in Laborie on Nov. 11, 2017, about two days after she went missing.
Police said a post mortem examination revealed that Byron, 33, died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head and body.
The post mortem was conducted on Nov. 15 by Dr. Heather Emmanuel.
Police officials are unable to confirm or disclose, at this time, whether she was raped or not.
However, sources say forensic testing is currently lacking in the investigation.
No one has been formally charged in connection with Byron’s death.
Two individuals were questioned and released, and a third person was recently taken into custody.
It is not known if the third individual is still in custody.
