Preliminary results of autopsy reveal that Katelyn Wolfe died of asphyxia

Family positively identified Wolfe's body

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - The preliminary cause of death for a Linton teenager whose body was discovered Monday was released Tuesday evening.

Police said an autopsy showed preliminary results that 19-year-old Katelyn Wolfe died from asphyxia, the ABC affiliate in Terre Haute reported.

Wolfe’s body was also positively identified by her family.

The Linton Police Department said her body was recovered from a body of water in the rural Sullivan County area.
Police arrested Jordan Buskirk, 26, and Randall Crosley, 25, in connection with Wolfe’s death.

Wolfe's father and stepmother said those two men had been with her in the hours before her death.

"Her last facebook post said that she was looking to have some fun, she was out walking, and it said that she was going to go with these creeps that kept driving by," said stepmother Laura Wolfe.

Wolfe's father said he doesn't believe the two men meant to kill his daughter, but he did not say why.
