(Walhalla, SC.) On October 23, 2014, Caleb Nathanael Linart was charged with the murder of Alana Carpenter. The initial autopsy showed evidence of strangulation which led to the arrest of Linart for the murder.  However, based on recent toxicology results, the final cause of death has been ruled a drug overdose.  

Based on these results, the murder charge has been dismissed and Mr. Linart has now been charged with attempted murder.  As this investigation is still ongoing, no further information is available at this time.
