Children Whose Parents Found Dead On I 4 Were Watching Movie In Running Car

The autopsy results of a couple who died on Interstate 4 outside their car shows that only one of the two people had drugs in their system, sheriff's officials said.

"Only one of them showed presumptive positive for drugs," Volusia County sheriff's spokesman Andrew Gant said.

The autopsies of 32-year-old Daniel Kelsey and his 30-year-old wife Heather Kelsey, which were done on Tuesday, also showed that there were no signs of trauma or foul play on the couple's bodies, Gant said.

The Kelsey's three sons — one of them an infant, the other two toddlers — were in their car seats watching a movie when they were discovered by a Florida Highway Patrol trooper, Sheriff Mike Chitwood said. The vehicle was running. 

Chitwood said Thursday that it was Daniel Kelsey who tested "presumptive positive" for drugs. The sheriff said there was a "presence of weed" in his urine. However, Chitwood also added that the toxicology tests done on the couple may show other substances. 

A cause of death will not be known until the toxicology tests are done, Gant said. That will likely take several weeks.  

The three boys were unharmed when found in the maroon-colored Ford Freestyle by a trooper, FHP spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Montes said. The trooper found the car, its hazard lights blinking, on the right paved shoulder of eastbound I-4, northeast of State Road 44, about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, according to a sheriff's report.

The vehicle hadn't been there more than 30 minutes because the trooper that found it had been patrolling the area, Montes said. How the Kelseys wound up stopped along the highway and unresponsive outside of their car is unclear. Chitwood had said the Ormond Beach residents were making their were back home from Quincy.
