Additionally, Carpenter said Jennifer Hart's wife, Sarah, and two of the three children found dead at the scene had a positive toxicology finding in their blood for diphenhydramine, an active ingredient in Benadryl. That number is higher than the legal limit in the state, which is less than.08.
The Mendocino County Coroner's office recovered the body on Friday about seven miles south of where the SUV was seen entering the rain-swollen river.
Police had previously said they believed the Hart family died in a suicide plunge from a scenic overlook. A specialized team of accident investigators is trying to figure that out with help from the FBI, Carpenter said. Three other children, Hannah, 16, Devonte, 15, and Sierra, also 15, are missing.
Police also said the Federal Bureau of Investigation was sending its Behavioral Analysis Unit to study cellphone data recovered from one of the family members' phones showing the Hart family's travel information.
A body that may be one of the remaining three missing children was recovered on April 7.
A neighbor of the Harts in Woodland, Washington, had filed a complaint, saying the children were apparently being deprived of food as punishment. Allman says DNA analysis from biological family members will be used to determine her identity. Were the children purposely drugged and did the parents know they were on suicide mission when they headed out for the "road trip". A worker visited the home March 23 and he said the Hart family packed up and left soon after.
Sarah and Jennifer Hart, both 39, and their six adopted children were believed to be in the vehicle at the time.
In 2010, Sarah Hart pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic assault involving one of the children, according to Douglas County, Minnesota, court records.
The SUV pulled onto a gravel turnout during a severe rainstorm, but parked too close to the river on the soft shoulder, and the ground gave way, according to the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office.
The Thottapilly family - father Sandeep, 42, mother Soumya, 38, and their two children, son Siddhant, 12, and daughter Saachi, 9 - were traveling from Portland, Oregon, to San Jose when they "suddenly stopped communicating with family in Valencia" on April 5.
