DALLAS (AP) — A medical examiner has ruled homicide in the death of a 14-year-old girl whose body was found in a North Texas landfill.

Kaytlynn Cargill had been reported missing in June after she didn’t return to her Bedford home from walking her dog.

A waste collection worker found her body two days later in an Arlington landfill.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office issued the ruling Thursday but did not specify what killed Cargill.
