Texhoma, OK – Probe continues into 2 Okla. Panhandle deaths
TEXHOMA, Okla. (AP) An autopsy report shows a woman who was hit by a train in the Oklahoma Panhandle had "acceptable levels" of prescription drugs to treat anxiety in her system.
Union Pacific Railroad spokeswoman Raquel Espinoza-Williams says Topeka, Kan., resident Rose Warner walked into the path of the train on Oct. 30. Her 5-year-old daughter, Alexandria Warner, was found dead in their room at a Texhoma motel where they had gone after Warner's car broke down.
According to the report, Diazepam and Nordiazepam were found in Rose Warner's system.
The cause of death was listed as multiple blunt force trauma. Medical Examiner's Office spokeswoman Cherokee Ballard told The Oklahoman the manner of death was listed as unknown because neither homicide nor suicide could be ruled out.
The deaths are still under investigation.
