The Lucas County Coroner s Office will wait for results of toxicology tests before ruling in the death of a former Toledo teen prostitute.
Samantha Walker, 18, died Wednesday in St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, where she was taken June 24 after an apparent overdose of prescription pain relievers.
She testified in April against a man who had raped her in 2002 when she was a 15-year-old prostitute in Atlanta.
The man was ordered to serve at least five years in prison. Georgia authorities said she had been trafficked to that state by a Toledo pimp.
