Autopsy Performed on Richland E. coli Victim

RICHLAND, Wash. -  Investigators are closer to knowing what killed a Richland woman who got E. coli during a national spinach scare.

A forensic pathologist has performed an autopsy on the body of 83-year-old Betty Howard. But before the Benton County Coroner determines the cause of death, he said tissue samples still need to be analyzed.

He said he may release results before the end of the week.
