Police: App St. student died about the time she disappeared

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

BOONE, NC (AP) — Police say an autopsy on an Appalachian State University coed who was the subject of a search died not long after she was last seen earlier this month.

Boone Police Chief Dana Crawford said Wednesday the autopsy on 18-year-old Anna Smith of High Point found signs of suffocation and no injuries to the head, neck, chest, or pelvic area. Crawford said while Smith did not appear to have been killed, investigators continue to look for any clues pointing to homicide.

The police chief said previously that a letter apparently written by Smith was found near her body, which was discovered Saturday in a heavily wooded area off campus. Authorities, family and friends had searched for Smith since she was reported missing from her college dorm on Sept. 3.
