YAVAPAI COUNTY - The Yavapai County Medical Examiner released the cause of death for a Valley kindergarten teacher whose body was found last month weeks after she was reported missing.

The medical examiner said 44-year-old Cathryn Gorospe died from multiple stab wounds and blunt force trauma to the chest. 

Arrowhead Elementary teacher Gorospe was last seen bailing 27-year-old Charlie Malzahn out of a Flagstaff jail on Oct. 6.

Police said human remains were found in Mayer, Arizona on private property off Nugget Mine Road about a week later.

Police said Malzahn gave investigators details and directions, which led law enforcement to narrow the scope of the search.

The Flagstaff Police Department officially ruled the case a homicide days later. Malzahn was named the suspect in the case.

On Oct. 20, the medical examiner's office said it used dental records to positively identify the human remains as Gorospe.
