The KERN COUNTY coroner's office has announced that the death of BUCK OWENS Country KUZZ/BAKERSFIELD MD/night personality KAREN GARCIA has been ruled an accident and not a homicide.
According to www.kuzz.com GARCIA's death (11/7/05) was due to a seizure, most likely caused by a reaction to the prescription antidepressant WELLBUTRIN. Investigators believe GARCIA suffered a grand mal seizure while at her computer and fell into a semi-kneeling position on the floor, hitting her head as she fell. The awkward angle at which she came to rest compromised her airway and she was asphyxiated while unconscious.
