The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled the death of a Bedford teen found in the Arlington landfill two months ago a homicide.

Fourteen-year-old Kaytlynn Cargill’s body was recovered June 21 in the Arlington City Landfill on Mosier Valley Road after being discovered there by landfill workers.

Cargill had been reported missing two days earlier after walking her dog around her apartment complex in Bedford. She had asked her friend to watch her dog for a minute.

She never returned and the dog was found tied to a post in the apartment’s dog park.

The Medical Examiner’s report stated Cargill died as the result of homicidal violence, but an exact cause of death has yet to be disclosed.
