FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A source has told CBS 11 News that there were no obvious signs of foul play found on the bodies of a 27-year-old woman and her 13-month-old daughter who were discovered in a field in far southwest Fort Worth.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner has identified the two as Hailey Gardner (infant) and Lindsay Groce.
Groce was naked, and her clothes were found strewn in the field, indicating she disrobed as she walked with Gardner from her wrecked vehicle, said the source, with direct knowledge of the case.
Groce as on top of Gardner, and their bodies were several hundred feet from the car.
With no visible injuries, other than “a few scratches,” investigators are moving away from the case being a homicide, according to the source, who added that hypothermia had not been ruled out as a cause of the deaths.
But questions remain on why Groce, if trapped in the cold, did not seek assistance from people in nearby homes.
“We’re stumped,” said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
No official death ruling has been made.
