The cause of death of a waitress who was found in a Wisconsin dumbwaiter has been revealed following the release of gruesome autopsy results.

Gymnast and Winona State University student Brooke Baures was killed in a freak accident on December 1. The 21-year-old young woman was working at a banquet on the second floor of WingDam Saloon and Grill when tragedy struck.

At first, police was baffled by what they found in the 3-by-3 dumbwaiter — an elevator used to help carry kitchen supplies between floors. However, as reported by the Inquisitr at the time, the sole police officer in the town of 859, Fountain City Police Chief Jason Mork, said he did not believe that Baures was the victim of foul play.

Now an autopsy, released by Mork, has confirmed those beliefs. The waitress apparently died when her head was caught in the elevator, the report indicates.
