ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY -- A Williamsburg woman may have died from a fatal overdose of concentrated bath salts. 

20 year old Abbi Brumbaugh was found dead at an Altoona home on Lexington Avenue Friday morning.  An autopsy was done Saturday, however the official cause of death will not be determined until toxicology tests are complete. 

An initial investigation suggests the woman was injecting what's known as 'Blizzard', you can buy it in head shops. 

Coroner Patty Ross is concerned about this new drug trend.  She knows of several emergency room cases where people have overdosed on Blizzard.
