GATLINBURG, Tenn. (WKYT) - A preliminary autopsy report in the deaths of a Kentucky woman and a Tennessee man found in a hot tub suggest the two may have died from a possible drowning.

Investigators say Myra Smith-Findell of Corbin, Kentucky and Jon Levin of Oak Ridge, Tennessee were both found dead in the hot tub of a Gatlinburg rental cabin on April 9th.

They say neither suffered significant trauma or injury, but both victims suffered from various health conditions.

The autopsy reports revealed Smith-Findell had cardiovascular disease, an enlarged heart, narrowing of arteries, and a fatty liver disease.

The report also shows Levin had an enlarged heart with four chamber dilation, narrowing of arteries, a fatty liver disease, and increased fibrosis.

Investigators are now waiting on the toxicology report to rule an official the cause of death.

Police say no foul play is suspected.
