Autopsy: Cary woman found with bag over head

Posted March 3, 2016

— A Cary woman who was found dead in her garage in December had a plastic bag over her head and had been strangled, according to an autopsy report released Thursday.

The body of Nalini Tellaprolu, 51, was found in the garage of her home, at 2107 Roland Glen Road, on Dec. 17 by her teenage son and another person, police said.

"We haven't walked into the house. We just opened the garage, and she was just lying there," the other person told a 911 dispatcher.

The autopsy report states that Tellaprolu was on the garage floor with her feet in the backseat of a car. A brown, plastic grocery bag was over her head and was knotted behind her neck, the report states.

Tellaprolu had numerous bruises and scrapes on her face, chest, back and arms, and the cartilage in her neck was broken, suggesting she had been strangled, according to the report.

No arrests have been made in the case.
