Painkillers cause of woman's death

   
A toxicology report received this week by the Mitchell County, N.C. Sheriff's Department revealed that the cause of death of an unidentified woman found on top of Roan Mountain on August 24 was a lethal dose of painkillers.
   The report also indicted that there was a .07 level of alcohol in the woman's blood at the time of her death.
   The woman's body was found approximately one mile south of Carver's Gap. The body had been apparently frozen in a large freezer, then left near a parking overlook N.C. Highway 264.
   Officers theorize the woman may have been bedridden. She was five feet, one inch tall and weighed 133 pounds. She had gray eyes and brown hair with quite a bit of gray.
   Several leads have been followed, but nothing concrete has turned up yet.
