After the Tempe Police Department released the autopsy report on Tempe teenager Adrienne Salinas, local media accounts concluded that the report didn't say much.

However, the autopsy report indicates that Salinas' entire body was not recovered from the Apache Junction wash where it was found in August, nearly two months after she was last seen.

"These nearly complete (please see Skeletal Chart) skeletal remains [redacted]," the autopsy report states, with more than one full line blacked out. "Much desiccated skin and ligamentous tissue are present, as is a small patch of presumed hear hair adhering to what appears to be desiccated skin of the neck."

Several other lines of the autopsy report are also blacked out. There's no mention of Salinas' head or hands throughout the report.

Tempe Police Officer Greg Duarte tells New Times the skeletal chart is not for release, due to the ongoing investigation. He says he can't comment on the apparently missing body parts.

I am sure that some of these cabrons making insensitive and outrageous comments would like pendejos like themselves to make similar comments about their family members or friends who disappear or are murdered? My condolences and prayers go out to Adrienne's family and friends! She was a beautiful young woman who did not deserve to be killed like that!

I don't know, but I did read somewhere Phoenix has a lot of kidnappings (moreso than other cities). Which is pretty scary. Also, I'm not so sure we needed to publicize the findings of this report. I'm not sure it's going to help matters.

Very sad. Should perhaps be considered that because she was found in a wash, animals in the area may have also disturbed the corpse. Not entirely surprising that she isnt complete. Just heartbreaking

Your neighbor should try again. And again. And again. If she truly does, she shouldn't stop. Sometimes the only way is to MAKE them listen. It is highly disturbing that they haven't fully recovered her. Poor lovely girl. Who knows? Someone does.

My neighbor had info that would have helped out on the case but they never responded back to her.The cops don't care.

If there isn't something significant that was just found to help the public find her killer why would you re-post this? Not much has changed from this story from the one you last posted about this poor girl and her death. Please respect her and her family.

Jen..for what it's worth..I agree with you, till I started reading the actual report in this article...if parts are missing from this girl that can not be blamed on animals doing their thing in the desert where they found Ms. Salinas...that does add a different sick dimension to this case.....one that maybe the public should be aware of.

speaking as a parent who has lost his children, this rehashing of this poor girls story is not helping her family. i understand wanting to get to the bottom of it, but please, please try to keep the more gruesome details out of the headlines the way you have titled this article. the article title is something that could have been addressed with more tact and dignity. i feel empathy and sympathy for her family, and know what they are going through, so please try to title articles about her death and the cases facts a little more compassionately

Every time I see her picture, I get tears in my eyes and think, what happened to you, honey? Did you know the guy who did this? Was it quick (God, I hope so)? At least her parents could give her a proper burial. They got to bring their girl home. But still…what on earth happened here?

” a small patch of presumed hear hair adhering to what appears to be desiccated skin of the neck."...presumed?...appears?..My God! I can only imagine the blacked out parts...poor girl.

The bf and the cabbie are not suspects. Really? Not even persons of interest? So, based on what little has been released by authorities, should the consensus be that we'll never know the cause of death and whodunit?

@yourproductsucks2  no parent wants to see their childs death turning into sensationalist headlines, especially when it is a child who may or may not have been laid to rest intact. you have no idea how much my heart goes out to her family

@danzigsdaddy I'm so sorry for your loss. I don't think anyone except those who have been through such tragedy can possibly comprehend it. I agree with you, when I read this article all I could think about was her family. I can't imagine why they would want to know these details, much less have them made public.
