Autopsy shows Dixon woman was strangled
The medical examiner says the death of a Dixon, Illinois woman found in her home was caused by “manual strangulation.”
The ruling came Tuesday, January 15, 2013 after an autopsy of 34-year-old Yolanda Sigler.
Yolanda’s body was discovered after police were called Sunday, January 13 to the home on Lincolnway she shared with her 34-year-old husband, Brian Sigler.
Police said they think Brian Sigler killed Yolanda before stabbing himself several times with a knife. Police described his wounds as “numerous” and “significant.”
Brian Sigler was in intensive care and under police watch at a local hospital.
