— New information has led Robeson County officials to rule that 92-year-old Grace Keith was not the victim of foul play.

Keith's body was found by neighbors in her house on North Elm Street in mid-January. At the time, police were suspicious about the cause of her death.

Now, the state medical examiner's office says Keith died of a heart attack after apparently falling.
