GATLINBURG, Tenn. -- A North Carolina woman known for her nature blogging on the Great Smoky Mountains National Park whose body was found in June in a creek died from hypothermia and an apparent "intentional" overdose of Benadryl, authorities said Monday.
The body of Susan J. Bennett, 62, who was known as Jenny, of Sylva, N.C., was found June 8 by searchers in the Greenbrier area of the park.
"Bennett was found in a sitting position in the creek with her head resting on rocks," states a release from the park.
A search was launched for Bennett after she was reported missing. Authorities found her vehicle in the park.
An autopsy determined Bennett died from "partial submersion in Porter's Creek," according to the news release.
