Medical Examiners: No Foul Play In Deaths

Florida officials now say they are sure there was no foul play connected to a Kentucky man and woman,found dead at a rest stop.

The Ashland Daily News reports a medical examiner ruled out foul play in the deaths of Kayla Hinton of Olive Hill and Kenneth Oldham of Morehead.

Their bodies were discovered in the front seats of a car earlier this month.

The car's gas tank was empty, the battery dead and the ignition key was in the on position.

Officials say the official cause of death has not been determined, but the couple could have died of carbon monoxide poisoning.

    I did not know you could die of carbon monoxide poisoning when the vehicle is outside unless something is used to feed the fumes from the exhaust back into the vehicle. This is tragic and so sad for all family and friends touched by this incident. I also thought that the highway patrol also made regular checks of these rest areas. Why wasn't this vehicle noticed sooner and were these individuals reported as missing?

    This is just so sad. I can not believe that noone checked on them before the time they did. If a car was in my sight for over a few hrs I woulod have at least checked on them :( May God help the families cope and deal with their losses.
