Country singer Adams found dead
Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash
Cash and Carter Cash died this year
The daughter of country singer June Carter Cash and stepdaughter of Johnny Cash has been found dead in a parked bus.

Rosey Nix Adams, who was also a singer, was found dead along with Nashville fiddle player Jimmy Campbell in Tennessee, in the United States.

A spokesman for the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department, said that the deaths were "suspicious".

Officials said that carbon monoxide from six propane or kerosene heaters on the bus may have killed the pair and that a post mortem examination was planned.

The sheriff's spokesman said emergency medical workers found drug paraphernalia, including needles and pipes, on the bus near the bodies.


Adams and her husband, Philip Adams, had recently sold a home in Montgomery County and were preparing to travel in the bus.

They had parked the bus behind the house for repairs.

"The Cash and Carter families are shocked and deeply saddened by the untimely death of Rosey Carter Adams," family spokesman Kirt Webster said in a statement.

"The family has suffered greatly this year by the successive passing of Rosey's mother, June Carter Cash, and her stepfather, Johnny Cash, in just over five months."

June Carter Cash died in May this year, and Johnny Cash died last month.
