A former Miss West Virginia USA with a string of drunken driving arrests has been found dead in her home.

Parkersburg City Councilman James Myers found the body of his daughter Vickie Myers Sunday afternoon.

Parkersburg Police says no foul play is suspected.

The 39-year-old former beauty queen was an art teacher at Parkersburg High School.

She was crowned Miss West Virginia USA in 1992 and had been arrested at least three times recently on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Wood County Schools superintendent Doctor Bill Niday says school administrators were obviously saddened by the news and extended condolences to the family.

Myers' body has been sent to Charleston for an autopsy.
