Autopsy: Mother overdosed, infant starved to death

PORTLAND, Tenn. (AP) ó An autopsy report shows a 1-year-old child found dead with his mother at a Tennessee home starved to death and the woman died of a drug overdose.

The bodies of the mother and son were found in February at their home in Portland, about 35 miles northeast of Nashville. The woman's 3-year-old daughter was found alive.

News outlets reported that autopsy results released Monday show the motherís cause of death to be drug toxicity from methamphetamine and fentanyl. The 15-month-old boy died of starvation and dehydration. Both deaths were ruled accidental.

Officials say they were found by a probation officer making a home visit.
