Witnesses said they saw the woman running around half naked and yelling incoherently. They assumed she was on drugs, and they left her alone. Later they saw her lying on the side of the road and discovered she had died. The Deputy Coroner said an autopsy is pending to determine the cause of death. He said drugs were found in the woman’s purse.
