Released autopsy details how April Millsap died

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -  April Millsap left home to walk her dog as she regularly did in the evening.  As she walked along the Macomb Orchard Trail in Armada July 24th, she was attacked.

The death certificate filed with the Macomb County clerk's office describes chilling details.

The autopsy  reveals Millsap was killed with blunt force trauma - her neck compressed so violently it caused asphyxiation.

Millsap was beaten and choked to death.  Whoever committed the crime, acted quickly.

The autopsy reveals from the time the killer started the assault - Millsap was dead just minutes later.

Her dog stayed with her until she was spotted by joggers. The FBI has joined the task force to find the killer. A white male with light colored curly hair seen in the area has been sought for questioning.

Police also have tips that a small motorcycle or motor scooter was seen on the path during the time of the murder.
