The 45-year-old daughter of June Carter Cash and stepdaughter of Johnny Cash was found dead Friday – it’s been a very tough year:
- Officials said Saturday that carbon monoxide from six propane or kerosene heaters on the bus may have killed the two and that an autopsy was planned. The bodies were found Friday afternoon.
Ted Denny, spokesman for the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department, said Saturday that the deaths were “suspicious.” He said emergency medical workers found drug paraphernalia, including needles and pipes, on the bus near the bodies.
Investigators identified the victims as Rosey Nix Adams, who also was the 45-year-old stepdaughter of late singing legend Johnny Cash; and Jimmy Campbell, 40, a bluegrass fiddle player who performed and recorded in Nashville for more than a decade.
