Earlier this week, the Indiana County coroner ruled Johnson’s death a homicide.

The coroner’s report said it was “homicidal violence” that killed Johnson. He also found “small scrapes (and) abrasions’ on both sides of her face.

An unidentified “yellowish substance” was found in Johnson’s stomach.

Natural and accidental causes of death have been ruled out.


Investigators said Johnson’s father and Nancy were beginning a romantic relationship, and argued just before the girl disappeared.

Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala said technology tracked Nancy’s car and phone from Penn Hills to Blairsville and back.

According to the criminal complaint, police say when they confronted Nancy about Johnson, she asked them, “Whose baby?” Then said, “It wasn’t me” before saying, “Officer, it’s not me.”
