LAKE ARTHUR, La. (AP) - Authorities say 27-year-old Lacie Fontenot, whose body was found Jan. 31 in a wooded area in Lake Arthur, drowned as a result of hypothermia.

Lake Arthur Police Chief Cheryl Vincent issued a statement Thursday reporting that Fontenot’s full-clothed body was found face-down in a foot of water in a wooded area.

According to the coroner’s report, there was no sign of struggle or injury on Fontenot’s body.

Vincent said detectives said witnesses saw or heard nothing suspicious or unusual leading up to the discovery of her body.

The Advertiser reports the autopsy released on Monday indicated that Fontenot had high levels of illegal controlled substance in her body when she died.
