The North Carolina Medical Examiner has released the full autopsy for a three year old girl who was reported missing in Gaston County and later found dead in a shallow grave in the woods.

According to the medical examiner's report, Jordyn Dumont died of blunt force abdominal injuries due to assault.

Dumont's remains were found in mid-August near her home on Bess Town Road in Gaston County. She had been reported missing by her mother's boyfriend the day before.

Two days after her body was found, preliminary autopsy results indicated her death was caused by blunt force trauma.

"We've learned the medical examiner is preliminary ruling the cause of death of as blunt force trauma. There was bruising on the body,” Captain Curt Rosselle said.

The boyfriend of Dumont's mother, 25-year-old William "Skip" McCullen, was charged with murder in the little girl's death.

According to the autopsy results released Wednesday, Dumont was found wrapped in a fitted black sheet in a hole beneath several broken tree limbs and dry leaves. 

Dumont was dressed in a long sleeve white shirt with the words "Best Big Sister," according to the report. She had "multiple contusions to the abdomen, bilateral arms and legs. Vomit was noted in the mouth and nose."

Gaston County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) previously released information about a case involving Dumont.

Officials said DHHS made five unannounced visits to the home between March 18 and May 19 in 2016 for "suspected neglect due to improper supervision and substance abuse." 

Dumont's family moved into the home on Bess Town Road in November 2015. Police said officers were called to the home 16 times before she was reported missing on August 15.

McCullen initially reported the toddler missing in an emotional 911 call August 15, saying he fell asleep and the girl was missing when he woke up. Her remains were found the next day.

Several weeks later, a gag order was filed in Gaston County Superior Court in the case. It bars any employee, supervisor, or director of the Gaston County Department of Social Service, the Gaston County Police Department and the State Bureau of Investigation from talking about the case.
