For those of you who may not remember. 7-week-old Aniston Walker disappeared from her Memphis, Tennessee, home back in January. Her egg donor, Andrea Walker said that she left the baby home alone with her 3-year-old while she took her 5-year-old to school. Aniston’s body was found more than a month after her disappearance and her mother was charged with murder.
Recently the Medical Examiner’s office released the details of Aniston’s autopsy. It doesn’t specify a cause of death other than saying that Aniston died from homicidal violence.
“Internal examination reveals no evidence of injuries or disease that would result in death. Toxicology analysis results are consistent with postmortem changes; neither drugs nor medications were identified,” Shelby County Medical Examiner Dr. Karen Chancellor wrote in the autopsy report. “In my opinion, this death resulted from intentional violence of undetermined type. The manner of death is homicide.”
I compared this story before to being somewhat similar to the Casey Anthony debacle. I hope with this cause of death being somewhat unspecified that we won’t have a repeat outcome.
UPDATE 3/7/2017: Andrea Walker has pleaded guilty to reckless homicide and received a suspended sentence of four years and four years probation. It’s more than likely that due to the fact that medical examiners could not pinpoint an exact cause of death that this deal was offered.
