Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young says the results of Celina Cass' autopsy would be released late Tuesday afternoon or early Tuesday evening in Concord.

Meanwhile, the girl's hometown is expected to move forward with its annual children's festival called Stewartstown Days. It's scheduled for Friday and Saturday.

Stewartstown residents had considered canceling it but they are now dedicating the event to her memory.

Celina's body was found near a hydroelectric dam that spans the Connecticut River between Stewartstown and Canaan, Vermont., Essex County state attorney Vincent Illuzzi said. 

Celina was last seen in her house a week ago, Monday, July 25, at her computer.

Authorities say they are treating the death as suspicious, reports CBS station WBZ.

The FBI has offered a $25,000 reward in the case.

Anyone with information is asked to call the state police at 603-846-3333.
