    A woman whose body was found inside a well under a barn in Newtown died of blunt traumatic head injury.

    A father and son found Elizabeth Gough Heath’s remains in April as they were renovating the barn at 89 Poverty Hallow Road.

    The 30-year-old woman was reported missing in April 1984, just days after John Heath filed for divorce, the Hartford Courant reports.

    The medical examiner previously ruled her death a homicide.

    Land records show that. John Heath owned the property until 2005, when he lost the property to foreclosure.
