Metro-east police say the death of a Worchester, NY woman inside a gas station restroom was probably drug related.
Madison County Sheriff Robert Hertz says 25 year old Angela Lamar, a Belleville native, had been traveling through Illinois with her boyfriend, a truck driver, when the couple stopped at a gas station along I-70 just outside of Highland.
Lamar was unresponsive when she was found inside the station restroom around 1:00 a.m. Sunday. She was pronounced dead at St. Joseph's Hospital in Highland.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports that investigators seized a syringe and heroin-filled capsules during their investigation. Sheriff Hertz says investigators suspect a drug overdose, but toxicology tests are still pending.
