ME: Cause of death for Portsmouth mother undetermined

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — The Norfolk Medical Examiner cannot confirm how a local woman died.

Investigators found 32-year-old Kathleen Barham’s body last month. Police say she disappeared days before from her apartment in Portsmouth. Family members said she left to do a load of laundry May 27 and never came back.

When investigators found her body in the woods off Tejo Land, her remains were badly decomposed.

On Friday, the medical examiner said there is no clear indication of how Barham died.

No further information has been released.
