GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — A coroner in Southeast Texas has ruled the deaths of a North Carolina doctor and her husband a double suicide.

The Galveston County Daily News (http://bit.ly/TNhrkM ) reported Thursday that toxicology results found 21 drugs in the body of William Cargile, including muscle relaxers and opiates.

The county medical examiner's office earlier said Dr. Leslie Cargile, who practiced in Black Mountain, N.C., had eight drugs in her system.

Authorities believe the couple left a hotel in Mobile, Ala., on Aug. 18 and arrived in Galveston the next day. Their bodies were discovered Aug. 24 in a Galveston hotel room.

Investigators previously said foul play was not suspected in the deaths. Empty physician sample packs of medication were found inside the hotel room.

The physician was 53. Her spouse was 58.
