The Florence County coroner issued an autopsy report, determining that Wahl died as a result of “multiple blunt force injuries due to a fall.” He also said her manner of death was classified as “undetermined.”

He explained that there are several types of manners of death: homicide, suicide, accident, natural and undetermined. He said because there was an amount of time that was unaccounted for regarding her whereabouts, he ruled her death as “undetermined.”

The SLED investigation into her death is now officially closed.
