LILY Peters’ preliminary autopsy has revealed startling new details on how the young girl was allegedly killed by her 14-year-old cousin.
According to a preliminary autopsy by the Chippewa County coroner, Little Lily’s death was a homicide after she suffered blunt force trauma and was strangled in the attack.
The coroner’s office did not disclose where the blunt force trauma occurred.
The completed autopsy is expected to be released in six to eight weeks with additional tests including DNA samples and evidence of the alleged sexual assault.
The haunting details were revealed after the district attorney released new information in court on Wednesday, claiming Lily was beaten and knocked to the ground before being hit with a cane.
Lily’s father reported her missing around 9 p.m. Sunday after she failed to return home from a visit to her aunt, who police said lives about four blocks away.
Officers found Lily’s bike overnight on a trail behind her aunt’s home.
Jeremy Machnik, who lives on Grove Street near Lily’s aunt’s house, told Fox 9 he saw the child laughing and rollerblading between 1pm and 3pm – just hours before she was reported missing .
The young girl’s body was found around 9:15 a.m. Monday in a wooded area near the Duncan Creek Trail in Wisconsin.
Now a 14-year-old boy named C.PB has been arrested after allegedly sexually assaulting and choking Lily to death.
Fox News and DailyMail.com both reported the suspect was her cousin – but this has not been confirmed by officials.
On Wednesday, District Attorney Wade Newell revealed in court that the “suspect’s intention was to rape and kill the victim from the start when he left the home and the victim walked down the path.”
Newell claimed that the 14-year-old, who is an eighth grader, punched and knocked Lily to the ground before hitting her with a stick. He is then said to have strangled and sexually abused her.
The teenager is charged with first-degree first-degree homicide, first-degree sexual assault and first-degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 13 with aggravated assault.
Judge Ben Lane was quoted as saying: “This was a serious threat to the community so the court is concerned that if released it could be a further threat.”
A $1 million cash bail was ordered, along with the condition of no contact with juveniles or possession of dangerous weapons.
‘NO STRANGER’ TO LILY
On Tuesday, Chippewa Falls Police Chief Matt Kelm admitted the suspect was “no stranger” to Lily and told reporters that the Peters family knew about the bomb arrest.
Web detectives have claimed the suspect is Lily’s cousin, but prosecutors declined to comment on the speculation, telling The US Sun: “We can’t get any details about the case.”
Chief Kelm also declined to confirm reports that the suspect was Lily’s cousin.
The warrant was executed at Lily’s aunt’s home, and the suspect’s initials were mentioned in court documents as C. PB.
The suspect will be charged in adult court for now, but Newell said his defense team has the right to make a motion to have the case referred to juvenile court.
He is being held in a juvenile detention center and another hearing was scheduled for Thursday 5 May at 3.30pm.
