BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) – Police say a woman found dead St. Patrick's Day died of "extreme intoxication" and hypothermia.

Barbara Faye Jackson, 55, of Blytheville was discovered at 8:50 a.m. Monday, March 17, face down on the porch of her apartment in the 1100-block of David Lane.

Medics pronounced her dead at the scene.

After processing the scene, Jackson's body was sent to the Arkansas State Medical Examiner's Office in Little Rock for autopsy and official cause of death.

Captain Scott Adams, commander of the Blytheville Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division, says preliminary lab results revealed Jackson died of "extreme intoxication and environmental hypothermia."

A small amount of cocaine was discovered on him, Adams said.

Green's body was also sent to Little Rock for autopsy.

Captain Adams said officers are following up on leads, but they have no new information at this time.
