DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Authorities say a Florida couple found dead near their running car with their three young children in the backseat died of an accidental fentanyl overdose.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2rcp7WY ) that the Volusia County medical examiner on Friday released its report into the deaths of Daniel and Heather Kelsey.
The two were found on the side of Interstate 4 in December. The couple’s three boys, ages 2, 1 and an infant, were inside the car strapped into their car seats watching a movie.
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office says the autopsies showed no foul play or signs of trauma in the deaths of 32-year-old Daniel and 30-year-old Heather Kelsey.
The newspaper reports 27 fatal fentanyl overdoes in Volusia County last year, four times more than in 2014.
