Autopsy Results in Lenox Death

ANKENY, IOWA – The autopsy results have been released in the death of 31 year-old Maggie Weaver, who was found dead in a cornfield outside of Lenox, Iowa in rural Taylor County on
August 3, 2013.

The Iowa State Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled that the death of Weaver was due to an accidental overdose caused by acute methamphetamine intoxication.  There were no indications
of foul play and, therefore, the investigation into her death is complete.

Weaver was last seen on July 31st at approximately 10:30 PM when she was waiting at a
residence for a ride from a friend.  The friend arrived approximately 2 ½ hours later and
Weaver was nowhere to be found.  Her body was eventually found by friends on August 3rd.
