Connecticut detectives opened an investigation into the accidental fatal drug overdose of Lauren Smith-Fields hours after the medical examiner issued her cause of death, which her family questioned.
Smith-Fields, 23, was killed by “acute intoxication due to the combined effects of fentanyl, promethazine, hydroxyzine and alcohol,” after a Dec. 11 date with an unnamed man who she met online, Connecticut’s chief medical examiner said Tuesday, adding they found no foul play.
The circumstances of what caused the Bridgeport woman’s overdose were now under criminal investigation, News 12 Connecticut reported.
“The Bridgeport Police Department continues to treat the untimely death of Lauren Smith-Fields as an active investigation as we are now refocusing our attention and efforts to the factors that lead to her untimely death,” Bridgeport Police Chief Rebeca Garcia told the outlet.
The development came after Smith-Fields’ family said the woman did not use drugs and questioned if police had investigated how the fatal concoction had been administered.
