Bath salt drugs found on man in murder-suicide

A synthetic drug sold as bath salts was found in the home, car and in the pockets of a man who killed his wife and himself after a high-speed chase on a highway in Washington state.

A synthetic drug sold as bath salts was found in the home, car and in the pockets of a man who killed his wife and himself after a high-speed chase on a highway in Washington state.

Thurston County Coroner Gary Wornock said Thursday he's having the bodies of David Stewart and Kristy Sampels tested to see if they had used the chemicals on April 5. The body of their 5-year-old son had been found suffocated at their home in Spanaway.

The chemical has come to the attention of officials after the state poison center reported a growing number of calls from people who became ill after using them as a substitute for cocaine or methamphetamine.

The state Pharmacy Board banned the bath salt drugs on Wednesday in an emergency action.
