50-year-old Karen Rodgers Mykleby from Lubbock, Texas suffered a medical emergency and succumbed to that emergency causing her death, according to an autopsy and Steve Lightfoot from Travis Parks and Wildlife.

Kingsland volunteer firefighters said they responded to the call on Thursday afternoon, July 11 and pulled the woman’s body out of the water.
