Autopsy results released in Criado homicides

Autopsies completed on the Criado family show the mother and two of her children were stabbed in the neck and that carbon monoxide poisoning was a contributing cause in all of their deaths.

Jackson County Deputy State Medical Examiner Dr. James Olson reported that the mother, 30-year-old Tabasha Paige-Criado, died as a result of multiple stab wounds to the neck and abdomen.

Two boys, Isaac, 6, and Andrew, 5, suffered stab wounds to the neck. The other two children, Elijah, 7, and Aurora, 2, died of carbon monoxide poisoning from inhaling smoke during an arson fire set at their home at 1027 W. 10th St. on Monday morning. (Correction: See below.)

The final determination of the cause of death is pending toxicology results, which can take several weeks to complete, police said in a release.
