NEWPORT, Wash. -

Investigators believe a drug overdose and exposure to the elements are behind the death of a woman whose body was found in Newport City Park over the weekend.

Brandi Jacobe, 25, was found deceased Sunday morning at the park by Pend Oreille County Sheriff's deputies who were called to the scene for a report of a person lying on the ground.

The sheriff's office requested assistance from the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab to process the scene for evidence.

Prescription drugs found at the scene where Jacobe was found, coupled with interviews, lead detectives to believe she died from exposure and a possible drug overdose. There are no indications of foul play.

An autopsy will be performed to confirm the cause of death.
