Autopsy in for Woman Who Died from Mysterious Illness

Autopsy results are in for one of three women who died of mysterious causes.

43 year old Debra Ann Rust of Gilmer died suddenly in late November after experiencing flu-like symptoms.

Preliminary autopsy results show rust died of pneumococcal pneumonia.

The report says Rust had her spleen removed 20 years ago and that put her at risk for developing pneumonia.

Two other women, both of Longview, also died suddenly around the same time with similar flu-like symptoms.

Results of their autopsies have not been completed.
