Foul Play Ruled Out In Deaths Of Doctor, Husband In Texas

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (October 25, 2012)--Authorities say they've ruled out foul play in the deaths of a North Carolina doctor and her husband whose bodies were found in a Texas hotel room.

The Galveston County Medical Examiner's Office says Leslie Cargile, 53, had at least six different drugs in her system, including powerful prescription painkillers and sedatives.

Authorities say Cargile's husband likely died a day or two before the well-known Black Mountain doctor, but toxicology reports aren't complete on William Cargile, 58, because his body was more decomposed.

The two had been missing for nearly a week when their bodies were discovered Aug. 24 inside a locked hotel room.

Authorities said the Cargiles had said they were going on an anniversary trip and left their cell phones at home.
