Mint Hill police say they are still awaiting results from the Mecklenburg County Medical Examiner’s Office in last week’s death of 16-year-old Kayla Campbell.
Lt. John Rowell said that as of Monday morning, authorities have not finished toxicology reports. He said Mint Hill police Detective Tim Lezette has been in contact with the medical examiner’s office Monday morning, but there is no update.
Campbell, a student was Independence High School, was reported missing by her family Dec. 9. She left her home, in a neighborhood near the N.C. 51-Interstate 485 interchange, about 2:30 p.m. that day and said she would be back from 5:30 p.m. She never returned.
After several days of searching, Campbell’s body was found early Thursday morning in a large pond near her home.
