A woman found dead in Abilene in April had a "hard wire" twisted around her neck and white bags tied around both of her hands, according to an autopsy report.

Twenty-year-old Jeannie Quinn's body was found on April 17 in a field near Arnold Boulevard and Marigold Street in Abilene.

Quinn had been reported missing from Levelland just days before her body was discovered.

The Abilene Police Department initially called Quinn's death suspicious, but they later ruled it as a homicide.

The autopsy report states that Quinn's death was a "staged hanging."

According to the autopsy report, Quinn died from asphyxiation.

Authorities have investigated Quinn's boyfriend and one of his friends in connection to her death, but no charges have been filed against either of them.

Abilene Police Chief Stan Standridge said on Tuesday that the Abilene Police Department has a person of interest in Quinn's murder and that they are not from Abilene.
