No foul play in Mississippi teen's death

MADISON, Miss. — A Madison County grand jury has concluded that Abigail Bonner's death was a suicide by prescription medication overdose.

Few details had been released surrounding Bonner's death after her body was discovered along a road less than a mile from her home on Aug. 14.

District Attorney Michael Guest was given the Madison County Police Department's investigatory notes in December in preparation for a grand jury hearing this week on the case.

Bonner was first reported missing on Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013. Police later reclassified her case to a runaway after chasing possible leads that she had left and traveled to New York City. Her body was found 10 days later in a wooded area about a mile east of her family's home near Madison Avenue Upper Elementary School.
