ROBESON COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) -- An autopsy report shed a sliver of light in the murder of 13-year-old Hania Noelia Aguilar.

In the autopsy released Wednesday, the North Carolina Office of the Chief Medical Examiner concluded she died of "homicidal violence of undetermined means," "most likely a form of asphyxia."

Hania was forced into a family member’s idling SUV and kidnapped from her driveway in the Rosewood Mobile Home Park in Lumberton on Nov. 5.

The Lumberton Police Department and the FBI arrested Michael Ray McLellan, 34, in connection with her kidnapping and murder.

McLellan was already being held in law enforcement custody on charges unrelated to this case — possession of stolen firearms, kidnapping and probation violation — when he was charged in Hania's death.

The Lumberton Police Department added 10 felonies on the following state charges in connection with Hania's death: first-degree murder, first-degree forcible rape, statutory rape of a person under 15 years of age, first-degree sexual offense, statutory sex offense with a person 15 years or younger, first-degree kidnapping, felony larceny, felony restraint, abduction of child, and concealment of a death.
