A Massachusetts medical examiner has ruled the death of a Woodstock jogger a homicide.

Judith Nilan’s autopsy was performed in Massachusetts because her body was found in a storage building that straddles the state line.

The medical examiner found she died from blunt force trauma to the head and neck.

Thirty-six-year-old Scott Deojay of Plainfield, CT is charged with murder.

Scott Deojay, the caretaker of Caroll Spinney who is the actor who plays Big Bird on Sesame Street, has already been charged with kidnapping and Connecticut prosecutors expect to bring homicide charges as well. The autopsy and police reports of the incident of Judith Nilan stated the following:

An autopsy showed the 44-year-old Nilan died of “blunt force trauma to the head and neck, causing multiple fractures, subarachoid hemorrhage and brain contusion by manner of homicide,” according to a report obtained by The Day of New London from District Attorney John Conte in Worcester, Mass.

An affidavit filed by police noted that Nilan was found bound, with her running pants partially pulled down, and that she “appears to have been beaten about the head.”

Human Remain Identified as those of Christine Rudy

According to findings by the crime lab in Madison, WI the remains found last week have been positively identified as those of the missing pregnant woman Christine Rudy.

Human remains found in rural Clark County are identified as those of Christine Rudy of Thorp. The 21-year-old pregnant woman had been missing over a month. The remains were positively identified Friday by analysts at the state crime lab in Madison, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s department.

The search for Rudy started when she was reported missing November 14th, two days after her husband Shaun Rudy claims to have left her along the side of a road in a forest area in bitter cold temperatures. Rudy said he dropped off his wife at her request during an argument, about 12 miles from their home.

Previously the sheriff’s department has said 23 year old Shaun Rudy was not considered a suspect. It is hard to imagine whether a suspect or not in the actual death of Christine Rudy, which cause of death is still to be determined, how anyone in good conscience could leave their six month pregnant wife on the road side.

Authorities did not release any further details.

No other details were released, except that the investigation into her disappearance had changed from a missing person case to a criminal investigation.
