Cause of death ruled on Concord decomposed body
An autopsy result has revealed that the Manchester woman whose body was discovered in September near the Walmart in Concord died as a result of a Benadryl overdose.
The death has been ruled a suicide, said Kim Fallon, a forensic investigator at the state medical examiner’s office. Fallon said Harrington died sometime around July 28. Benadryl is an over-the-counter allergy medication.
The police found Harrington’s badly decomposed body Sept. 16 in a wooded patch along Route 106. She was believed to be homeless and had been wearing dark jeans and an olive-green fleece at the time of her death.
