Cause of death determined after bodies of missing couple found in swamp

According to MSP, Jeff Hurley and Alexandria Foust died from hypothermia.

MISSAUKEE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- Autopsy results have closed a nearly five-month investigation into the man and woman that were found dead in a Missaukee County swamp.

According to Michigan State Police Troopers, Alexandria Foust, 19, and Jeff Hurley, 34, both died of hypothermia in Dead Stream Swamp.

Troopers said there was no foul play but both people were under the influence of methamphetamine at the time of death.

An endangered missing person advisory was issued for Foust and Hurley in early November when the couple's car was found near the swamp.

Troopers suspended their search for the couple as deer season approached but warned hunters to be observant while in the woods.

The search picked up back up in December but the bodies of the couple weren't found until the end of March.
