‘She’s a tough kid’: Xana Kernodle’s describes home security and daughter’s autopsy
Jeffrey Kernodle, the father of murdered Xana Kernodle, has released new details about his daughter’s autopsy, as well as the security features of the rental home where Xana and three of her friends were killed on Nov. 13.
The rental house required a keypad to enter, so Mr Kernodle believes the attacker must have found another way to sneak in.
“Well, they either knew that, or they just turned around and found the slider [sliding door] open,” Mr. Kernodle said.
“I think midnight was the last time we heard from her and she was fine,” he said, describing how Xana and her boyfriend Ethan Chapin, 20, were “just hanging out at home” before they were killed.
The father also shared gruesome details from Xana’s autopsy, which he believed showed his daughter fought off her attacker.
“Bruises, torn by the knife. He’s a tough kid,” Mr Kernodle said. “Whatever he wanted to do, he could do.”
