MILFORD — Pike County Coroner’s Office confirmed this week that the autopsy of Leanna Walker, the Sunrise Lakes teenager whose remains were found on a llama farm in Milford last fall, is still ongoing.

The case is treated as murder by authorities.

Postings on Facebook in recent weeks include worried speculation that the case has "gone cold."

The coroner's office said it takes a long time for all autopsy results to come through. And since it’s an ongoing investigation, the office declined to comment further except to say that it should not be long now.

Seventeen-year old Leanna Walker was a former Delaware Valley School District student when she disappeared on April 18, 2016, from her Sunrise Lakes home after leaving voluntarily with her boyfriend, Sky McDonough, who was 24 at the time.

After several weeks scouring the area for her in mid-May 2016, searchers found her remains at the llama farm. Authorities had to perform forensic testing to identify her.

McDonough was arrested on unrelated charges later in 2016.
