Irregular Heartbeat Could Have Caused Drowning



In Franklin County, the coroner says an 18-year-old woman had an irregular heartbeat that could have caused her to drown last month in Rend Lake.
 
That is the official finding of an autopsy on Emilie Joe Turrentine of Carmi.
 
She was swimming with friends on Sept. 2 when she slipped beneath the surface. Her body was found the next day in about 10 feet of water.
 
Authorities are still investigating, but they don't believe alcohol or drugs played a part in her death and don't believe foul play was involved.
