(WMC-TV) - Friends and family of a beloved Germantown mother received new answers Tuesday when officials made details from Heather Palumbo-Jones' autopsy public.
Palumbo-Jones' next door neighbor says he was shocked by the brutal report. Now, he wonders how all of this madness is affecting the couple's two young children.
'We had all these plans for the summer and everything with all the kids cause. She has two kids, and we have four now," said neighbor Daniel Jones, speaking for the first time about her death.
An autopsy report shows the former teacher died from asphyxia. Medical examiners had to use dental records to identify her badly burned body.
Police say her estranged husband Chris Jones led them to her remains.
"It's pretty scary to know that someone could just fly under the radar like that you know with no real reason just brutally a kill her," said Daniel.
Before Chris Jones' arrest, he told the media he would never but his hands on her. Daniel says Chris was eerie.
He says he's praying the couple's children will someday cope with what's happened.
"Words can't express how horrible that could be for them. I just hope that they're well taken care of, and I can't imagine anyone doing that when you have your kids as your main priority," said Daniel.
A judge recently found Chris Jones mentally competent and fit to stand trial. His case will now go to the grand jury for possible indictment.
