(Newser) – Autopsy results released yesterday state that there were no drugs found in the body of Caylee Anthony, but duct tape had been placed over the slain 2-year-old's mouth before decomposition, the Orlando Sentinel reports. The toddler's skeletal remains were found mixed with garbage bags and a laundry bag, states the report, which lists the cause of death as homicide.

"There is nothing inconsistent with the body being placed there soon after the day of being last seen alive," states the forensic report, which forms part of the first-degree murder case against Caylee's mother, Casey Anthony. Lab reports also released yesterday found that the chemicals found in the carpet of the trunk of Anthony's car were consistent with early human decomposition.
