Tennessee kindergarten teacher Eliza Fletcher died from a gunshot wound to the head after being kidnapped during an early morning run, an autopsy report from the West Tennessee Regional Forensic Center revealed this week.

The 34-year-old also had blunt-force injuries to her right leg and jaw fractures. According to CBS News, the toxicology report notes that there was fentanyl in her system; it does not say how long it was in her system or if she was sexually assaulted.

Fletcher was running on the University of Memphis campus at 4 AM on September 2 when she was forced into a vehicle. Her body was found behind a vacant home on September 5 after a three-day police search.
