BLACK MOUNTAIN, N.C. — Authorities said the bodies of a Henderson County doctor and her husband have been found in a hotel room in Galveston, Texas, nearly a week after they disappeared.

Investigators with the Galveston County Medical Examiners Office said a hotel employee found 53-year-old Leslie Cargile and her 58-year-old husband William on Friday. The room was locked from the inside.

Authorities say the deaths don’t appear to be homicides, but are awaiting autopsy results. Investigators say a number of medicine samples were found in the couple’s room.

The couple was last seen on Aug. 18, and they were reported missing Monday morning when Leslie Cargile didn’t show up at her clinic to see patients.
