Autoposy results for Maggie Weaver — the woman found dead in a Lenox cornfield in August — were released this afternoon (Thursday).

The 31-year-old Weaver died of an accidental overdose caused by acute methamphetamine intoxication — this according to the Iowa State Medical Examiner's office.

According to the report, there were no indications of foul play and, therefore, the investigation into her death is complete.

DCI reports Weaver was at a residence waiting for a ride from a friend on July 31. The friend arrived approximately 2 1/2 hours later, and Weaver was nowhere to be found. Friends and family searched for Weaver for several days, eventually finding her dead in a cornfield west of Lenox on Aug. 3.

Weaver resided in Brookfield, Mo., but went to school in Creston. Locals knew her better by her married name of Maggie Dodson.
