Investigation continues into June death at Perryville hotel

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

PERRYVILLE, Mo. -- An autopsy has been completed on a woman found dead in Perryville hotel room in late June, but the coroner said he is not releasing the details because the matter is still under investigation.

Perry County Coroner Herb Miller said Tuesday that the autopsy of Nicole Jones has been concluded, including toxicology reports on her drug and alcohol levels.

"The matter is still under investigation and that information won't be released until formal charges are filed," Miller said, declining additional comment.

Steven A. Harbour, a 25-year-old Fredericktown, Mo., man who allegedly sold Jones prescription drugs, including oxycodone, already faces three counts of possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute.

Law enforcement and Miller are still collaborating to continue investigation into the incident. Perry County Prosecuting Attorney Thomas L. Hoeh did not return phone calls Tuesday seeking comment.
