STEWARTSTOWN, N.H. (AP) - Authorities say despite an autopsy they don't know what killed an 11-year-old New Hampshire girl whose body was recovered from a river.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young says the autopsy was conducted Tuesday but didn't determine a cause of death and further study is required.

Fifth-grader Celina Cass had been missing for a week when her body was found Monday in the Connecticut River. The body was discovered about a quarter-mile from her home in Stewartstown, a community of 800 residents near the Canadian border.
