 (KMOV) – A New York woman was found dead in the stall of a convenience store bathroom early Sunday morning in Madison County.

Investigators are working to determine how Angela Lamar, 25, died after she was found unresponsive in the CC Food Mart bathroom in Highland.

She was transported to an area hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Madison County authorities are waiting for an autopsy report before releasing a cause of death but they say a syringe and heroin-filled capsules were found during their investigation.

Lamar’s boyfriend, an over-the-road truck driver, was questioned in her death. He was traveling with her through Illinois.

An official cause of death will be determined following a toxicology exam.
