CHICAGO (AP) - An autopsy shows the death of a toddler whose dismembered remains were found in a Chicago park lagoon has been officially ruled a homicide, but no cause of death has been determined.

Last month Chicago police said DNA analysis matched the remains to 2-year-old Kyrian Knox, who was reported missing in northern Illinois in September.

The case garnered national headlines when body parts were found in September in Garfield Park Lagoon.

The Chicago Tribune reports (https://trib.in/1R08284 ) the Cook County medical examiner’s office released details on Friday. However, the office maintains it hasn’t “officially” identified the remains as they wait on a DNA analysis report.

Chicago police have said that two witnesses are refusing to cooperate in the investigation. No charges have been filed.
