The Vanderburgh County Coroner's Office has released an official cause of death for the man who was found dead in a home on Stinson Avenue in Evansville, Indiana.

The coroner's office said Monday that an autopsy confirmed 50-year-old Timothy Ivy of Evansville died from strangulation and that the manner of his death was a homicide.

Police believe Ivy was strangled to death by 46-year-old Carey Hammond, who was shot and killed by police earlier in October.

Authorities believe it happened after Hammond came home to find his girlfriend, 36-year-old Heidi Carter, engaged in sexual activity with Ivy and another woman who was Ivy's girlfriend.

Investigators were told that Hammond became enraged, shackling Ivy's girlfriend and raping her before finally strangling Ivy to death with a belt.

Ivy's body was found in the home after Hammond committed what authorities called "suicide by cop."

Carter remains in the Vanderburgh County Jail on charges of Rape, Murder, Abuse of a Corpse, and more.
