Autopsies are in on a mother and daughter believed slain in Winona , Minnesota, but police aren't revealing the manner of death.

Twenty-nine-year-old Stacy Lee Ziegler Smith and her ten-year-old daughter, Taylor Nicole Swanson, were found dead last week after an apartment fire. Police are withholding the cause of death since the investigation is ongoing.

Police believe the fire was set deliberately and that someone killed Smith and her daughter. They are still looking for a 21-year-old man considered a "person of interest" in the case.
