BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Mary Anderson, the missing Harvard woman whose body was found early Tuesday morning, died after being shot in the head, Vermont officials said Thursday.

Anderson, 23, was last seen in Hudson, N.H. on Saturday, July 16 and was reported missing by her family the following day, prompting a multi-state investigation. On Tuesday, July 19, Anderson's body was discovered in Brattleboro, Vt. inside her blue 2017 Toyota Tacoma.

Several hours later, Vermont State Police announced that Anderson's ex-boyfriend, Matthew Davis, 34, of Fitchburg, was shot and killed by two troopers and a Brattleboro police officer after Davis lunged at investigators with a knife. Davis was a person of interest in Anderson's death.

The Vermont Chief Medical Examiner's Office performed an autopsy on Anderson Wednesday and determined she died from a gunshot wound to the head. Her death was ruled a homicide.

The Medical Examiner's Office also performed an autopsy on Davis and determined he died from multiple gunshot wounds. Officials have also considered his death a homicide.

Vermont State Police and other law enforcement agencies will continue the investigation into where and when Anderson was killed, and if she was abducted.
