Questioning Continues In Cookeville Woman's Death

Authorities say they have now questioned more than twenty friends and acquaintances of a Cookeville woman, whose body was found by a roadside in Smith County last week. 28-year-old Cynthia Dawn Crabtree had been reported missing last month, after she reportedly left the area in the company of an as yet unidentified man. Detectives say they are still waiting on a full toxicology report from the autopsy as they attempt to determine her cause of death, but they say -- right now -- it does not appear to be a homicide. They hope to wrap up their investigation into the cause of death within a week or so and also determine what may have happened in the hours leading up to it.
