Death of woman found under bridge ruled accidental
(WOUB) - A coroner has ruled that the death of a woman whose body was found beneath a rural, one lane bridge in eastern Ohio was accidental and cocaine related.

Investigators say the big question remaining is who dumped the body of 35 year old Stephanie Gallis where it was discovered by deer hunters in late December.

In his report released yesterday, the Muskingum County coroner says the Zanesville woman died from acute cocaine drug effects. A sheriff's detective says it wasn't an overdose, but cocaine in Gallis's system combined with alcohol and marijuana to cause the death.

She was last seen by family members in mid-October.

Another woman had been found dead under the same bridge in 2002.
