WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — Authorities in Williamson County say an autopsy report shows an 18-year-old woman who was found dead in her bed over the weekend died from a medical issue.

On Saturday morning, the family of Lauren Elain Nowka, called 911 to report that they found her dead in her bed inside their home located on Buck Bend, which is just southwest of Georgetown. The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office originally said Nowka’s death was being investigated as a suspicious death because of her age and she had no prior medical history.

However, an autopsy revealed her death was not suspicious.

This is one of several deaths the sheriff’s office was called to over the weekend. On Sunday night, an elderly man died due to an apparent carbon monoxide poisoning at his home north of Georgetown.
