Adrienne Salinas' Entire Body Wasn't Found
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.
