The office of the CT Chief Medical Examiner reports that the cause of East Hampton woman Jini Barnum’s death was asphyxiation and “compression” – or strangulation.

Barnum’s remains were found this weekend in a shallow grave in a wooded area in Glastonbury CT.  Her death is under investigation.

Her boyfriend, Anthony Garofalo, reported her missing on July 28, 2012. He is currently in custody for violating parole. Police will not comment on whether Garofalo is a suspect.

Barnum, who had given birth just 6 weeks before she was reported missing, was 30 years old.
