Woman’s Death in Sam Houston National Forest Accidental

Published on January 11, 2018 by Larry Crippen

The Huntsville Item reports that it’s been determined that foul play was not involved in the death of 55-year-old Theresa Lynn Kirkpatrick who was found dead this past summer after being separated from her husband in the Sam Houston National Forest.

The story says the Walker County Sheriff’s Office says autopsy reports reveal that Mrs. Kirkpatrick died from the toxic effects of methamphetamine, and her death was an accident. She was found last July 29th between Forest Service Road 216 and the Stubblefield Lake Recreation Area after being reported as missing. According to Sgt. John Pugh, her diabetic medical condition and the heat and humidity at the time could also have played a part in her death.
