Officials look for clues to Conn. woman’s fatal D.C. trip

Antipsychotic drugs are found in her home

Investigators have found antipsychotic medications in the Connecticut home of a woman who was killed in Washington on Thursday after leading the police on a high-speed chase through the heart of the nation’s capital, law enforcement officials said Friday.

Miriam Carey, 34, was fatally shot, authorities said, after she tried to drive past a barricade near the White House and struck a Secret Service officer. Carey drove off, rammed at least one car along the way, and finally stopped blocks from the Capitol, which was briefly locked down. One police officer was injured during the pursuit.
