Savanna Greywind – who was eight months pregnant when she went missing – died of "homicidal violence," according to the preliminary autopsy report. 

Greywind had gone missing Aug. 19. Her body was found in the Red River Sunday evening. It was wrapped in plastic and duct tape. 

Her body was sent to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office, and on Tuesday the Fargo Police Department said her death was "due to homicidal violence," however no other details were released. 

"We are unable to release the specific details of Savanna's death, or the manner in which Savanna's baby was born," police said. 

Greywind went missing after going to her neighbors' apartment. Her neighbors – Brooke Lynn Crews and William Henry Hoehn – were charged Monday in connection to her death. 

Police found a newborn baby in Crews' and Hoehn's apartment days before Greywind's body was found. 

It hasn't been confirmed that the baby was Greywind's, but Crews told police she told the expectant mother how to induce labor, and a few days later Greywind returned to Crews' apartment with a baby, the criminal complaint says. 

However, Hoehn's story differs from what Crews told investigators. He said he returned to their apartment on Aug. 19 to find Crews cleaning up blood, the complaint says. 

Fargo police say the case is still under investigation and there are no more details that can be released at this time.
