More information is coming out in the murder investigation into the death of Penn State Altoona student Margo Davis.

Davis body was found last Wednesday in the trunk of her car in the parking lot of the Country Club Terrace apartments.

According to State police Davis may have been killed in the apartment of 19-year-old suspect Sean Allen. Police believe Davis' body may have then been dragged to her car. An autopsy has revealed "drag/scrape marks" on Davis' body and small pieces of stone and asphalt.

The Blair County District Attorney’s office says there is substantial evidence against Allen. A comforter stained with blood, rubber gloves, a white towel and Davis’s cell phone have been recovered from Allen’s apartment. In addition police say they have evidence of cell phone dialogue between Allen and Davis the night of her death.

Text messages to and from Allen on Davis' phone have been discovered including directions to his residence.

The preliminary hearing in the case against the 19-year-old Allen has been pushed back until April 9th.
