A MOM killed her two young twins before taking her own life, a coroner has ruled.
Mystery had surrounded the deaths of Andrea Langhorst, 35, and her two kids, aged three, after they were found dead in their car in Melbourne, Florida earlier this year.
But an autopsy released this week and obtained by People.com confirmed that Langhorst gave Olivia and Adam Dryer a fatal overdose of drugs.
Their deaths have been ruled homicides.
Langhorst then committed suicide after taking meth and cocaine, an autopsy report by Brevard County ruled.
Police had been called to investigate reports of a suspicious vehicle when they discovered the tragedy on March 20.

Andrea 's dad Randy Langhorst had said at the time that he believes that drugs may have been a factor in his daughter's death.
Authorities had also confirmed that Langhorst and her kids lived out of their vehicle from time to time and were living in the Cadillac at the time of their deaths.
Langhorst's father also said that she had been living in AirBnbs to stay off the radar while the three-year-olds' father is in prison.
Randy told Florida Today that his family was devastated to hear the news.
He hadn't spoken with his daughter since March 11, which was unusual. He had already filed a missing person report with the Florida police.
"We were looking for her and hadn't heard anything from her. That was unusual for her," he said.
"We wouldn't have daily contact with her, but this was a while. She was a free spirit, smart as a whip, beautiful, but lived her life to the beat of her own drummer. It's just a tragedy."

"The twins were her pride and joy," Randy added.
