The overdose death of a Kingman woman has been ruled a suicide.

On Thursday, Kingman Police detectives received autopsy results from the Medical Examiner’s Office concerning the death of Kimbelry A. Eglet, 43.

“Cause of death was Wellbutrin intoxication,” Sgt. Rusty Cooper said in an e-mail. “The death has been ruled a suicide.”

Wellbutrin is an anti-depressant drug commonly used to help ease tobacco addition.

At about 9 a.m. on Dec. 22, Eglet was found deceased in a field area near the 4000 block of Stockton Hill Road. She was found near her car that had been driven into a ditch.

The initial autopsy was performed on Dec. 26 by the Mohave County medical examiner. There was an error in the initial toxicology report, so more tests were required, Cooper said.
