NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) _ A southern Indiana coroner says she found water in the lungs of a woman and two children who were found dead in a creek and that they might have drowned.
Floyd County Coroner Leslie Knable tells The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky. that autopsy results showed the victims suffered injuries consistent with having been in water. Official causes of death won't be determined until toxicology results are in, which could take up to four weeks.
The bodies of 35-year-old Jamie Clutter, 10-year-old Brandon Clutter and 6-month-old Katelyn Clutter were found in a New Albany creek by a passer-by Wednesday evening.
Knable didn't say how long the bodies were in the water but said it was likely a matter of hours, not days
