BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Benton County sheriff's officials say the cause of death of a woman found with her 22-month-old daughter appears to be drug and weather-related.
Sgt. Shannon Jenkins told reporters that it appears 35-year-old Carol Davidson died of accidental methamphetamine intoxication with hypothermia contributing to her death. Jenkins said the cause of 22-month-old RoseMarry Davidson's death is undetermined, but that it appears to be due to starvation or hypothermia.
The two were reported missing Nov. 12 from Siloam Springs, one day after they were last seen. The bodies were found in February in the Lake Wedington section of the Ozark National Forest, about 1½ miles from where Davidson's van had been found shortly after she disappeared.
