Police announced Friday that an autopsy found that Dondiego died as a result of head injuries.

Investigators are still trying to determine what happened and have not publicly named any suspects.

Police ask anyone with information to call Investigator E. Ortiz at 919-560-4440, ext. 29337, or CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.
