Cassie Carli cause of death ‘undetermined,’ says coroner

| Staff Reporters

After waiting six months, the autopsy for Cassie Carli is done. Although the autopsy results have yet to be released, Saint Clair County (Ala.) coroner Dennis Russell told Navarre Press the cause of death and manner of death was “undetermined.”

On Mar. 27, Cassie Carli vanished from the Juana’s boat ramp parking lot following a custody exchange with Marcus Spanevelo, the father of her four year old daughter. After a week of searching and investigating, Carli’s body was found in a shallow grave in Saint Clair County, a county about 40 minutes outside of Birmingham.

Cassie Carli, the inspiration for Rep. Dr. Joel Rudman’s bill, died in 2022 following a custody exchange in a parking lot on Navarre Beach.
