Federal, state, and local investigators have combed over the crime scene and were able to rule out terrorism as a motive.

Investigators said it took a while to get a positive identification due to the state of the body following the explosion.

Lark was not a resident at the apartment complex, according to investigators.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about the explosion or Lark’s death to come forward.
