At 18:43, Yara left the Brembate di Sopra sport center alone, but never arrived home 700 meters away. Her family soon called the Carabinieri, but despite a search involving hundreds of volunteers, her body was not found until 26 February 2011 in Chignolo d'Isola, 10 kilometers from Brembate di Sopra. There were multiple stab wounds on her body and a large wound on her head. In August 2011 a final autopsy report was not yet released and not even the exact death cause was ascertained, leaked details from investigation suggest that death was caused by a combination of a head blow (probably with a stone), at least six cut wounds (none deadly) and freezing. It does not appear that Yara was raped although there was probably an attempt to rape her. At the moment, no one has been charged with her murder. The funeral of Yara Gambirasio took place on 28 May 2011 and were presided by the bishop of Bergamo Francesco Beschi.
