Shields said one of the suspects led investigators to Crawford's body on Friday. The medical examiner listed her cause of death as asphyxiation.

"The case has come to one of the saddest conclusions possible," Shields said. "For Alexis' family, our hearts go out to you. I am so truly sorry we could not provide you with a better ending."
