The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office has not yet determined Combs’ cause or manner of death.
During the investigation, police realized Combs’ cellphone was missing. The family had disconnected it, but re-connected the phone so that investigators could attempt to find it. Police were able to ping its location and found the cellphone with the suspect, Sturgeon said.
Police interviewed Bierma before she was booked into jail. Officers plan to present charges to the prosecutor’s office.
Sturgeon said it doesn’t appear Combs and Bierma had “any consistent connection,” but that Combs picked up Bierma on Xenia Avenue the previous Saturday.
