Jennifer Hart had alcohol in her system at time of fatal crash

The body of a woman was discovered Friday along a Northern California river where a Santa Clarita family are believed to have gone missing last week.

Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman on Friday said toxicology results showed Hart's blood alcohol content was 0.102, above the legal driving limit of 0.08.

Jennifer Hart (center) was drunk when she drove her wife and six children off of a cliff in California, according to police.

The toxicology report also found that two of the adopted children and her wife, Sarah Hart, had a "significant amount" of an ingredient that can make consumers feel sleepy and is often found in allergy medicine like Benadryl.

The family of four - two parents and two children - was traveling from Portland, Oregon, to their home in Santa Clarita, California, last week when they stopped communicating with relatives. By Sunday, April 8, relatives had reported the family missing to San Jose police and an alert was sent out. Authorities believe Devonte, 15, Hannah, 16, and Sierra, 12, may have been in the vehicle and were swept out to sea. But after spending two weeks with the family Argyropoulos said she noticed kindness, love and respect for the children was largely absent.

The Harts, who immersed their children in alternative culture, left many friends and acquaintances with the impression of a happy family that emphasized love, unity and music.

Jennifer and Sarah Hart and three of their children were killed in the auto crash.

Cheryl Hart, who identified herself as a friend of Sarah Hart, called 911 in Clark County on Monday, March 26, anxious because she hadn't been able to reach Sarah since receiving a text message from her at 3 a.m. two days earlier.

Authorities work the scene of the March 26 fatal crash on the Mendocino coast near Mendocino, Calif., where the SUV carrying the Hart family off a cliff, killing all passengers.

In 2010, Sarah Hart pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic assault involving one of the children, according to Douglas County, Minnesota, court records.

Devonte Hart became the center of attention after the crash.

Police have said a search of the family's home in Woodland, Washington, turned up no suicide note.

The 15-year-old made headlines in 2014 after a photographer shot a photo of him hugging a police officer during a protest after the decision was made to not press charges against the officers who shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

Child Protective Services in Washington confirmed they opened an investigation into the Hart family on March 23. "The theory is the child is from this vehicle".
