Drugs not found during autopsy of woman who killed five children and self

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Autopsies show a North Carolina woman
who killed five children, wounded a former lover and killed herself
in November had no drugs in her system, but investigators found a
bag containing cocaine.

The state medical examiner’s office in Chapel Hill on Tuesday
released reports for 36-year-old Mary Ann Holder and her victims.
All were shot in the head with a .38-caliber handgun.

Holder’s autopsy found only caffeine in her system. A small
plastic bag containing cocaine and a chemical used to dilute the
drug was in her vehicle.

Guilford County Sheriff BJ Barnes says investigators couldn’t
find a clear motive for Holder’s shooting rampage.

Mary Ann Holder shot to death her 17- and 14-year-old sons, her
8-year-old niece, her 17-year-old nephew, and the 15-year-old
girlfriend of her older son.
