HALTOM CITY, Texas -

Mystery surrounds the death of a North Texas woman who was discovered in Haltom City's Fossil Creek Park.

Birdie Lunsford was found lying on a concrete slab in the middle of a creek in the park near the Diamond Oaks Country Club, according to police.

The 34-year-old woman had spoken to her father that night, telling him she was at the park looking for unique rocks and fossils for her collection. Shortly afterward a 911 call lasting 6 minutes was placed from her phone.

"She had made a 911 call at 7:20 and I talked to her at 7, so a 20 minute span there – something happened. I don't know what happened," William Lunsford said. "When I talked to her, she was fine."

Police have listened to the call and said the woman did not indicate that she was in any trouble.

"911, what is the nature of your emergency," the operator said.

"Ah well, I'm not exactly in an emergency but um is there a call from Haltom City? Um, gonna sound kind of strange because people aren't always watching me," Lunsford said.

She explained to the operator that she thought someone must have called 911 after hearing her scream and jump on a log when she saw a snake. She said she saw a man hiding behind a tree and thought he might be with the neighborhood watch.

"Do you want me to have officers come speak to you?" the operator asked.

"Well yea, I was kind of waiting on them. Um, I saw a water moccasin. I jumped up on a log and stayed there for about 20 minutes," Lunsford said.

But in the end she tells the operator not to send an officer.

"So you don't need to speak to an officer?" the operator asked again.

"No, no not if ah, you know, if they didn't call saying there was a crazy woman," she said.

"No they didn't," the operator said.

"Thank you so much. You just relieved me," Lunsford said.

"No problem. You have a good evening," the operator said.

Police said there were no signs of foul play at the scene and Lunsford's cause of death is still unknown.

The Tarrant County medical examiner will determine how she died.

"We're just at a loss and I'm going to miss her, miss her a lot," William Lunsford said.

I wonder if the snake bit her and it took several minutes for her to die? The call sounds kinda incoherent, like she was going into shock or something.

You know that's kind of what I wondered but I've heard cottonmouth bites are pretty painful.  I've heard of people being bitten by coral snakes and not knowing though.

Weird.

I hope to find out what happened. There's been no follow up stories that I have found. I've played with my kids in that creek; I can picture in my mind exactly where she was. Fossil Creek Park is a nice area with softball fields and play grounds and whatnot. A short 100 yard hike threw the woods and it opens up to the creek. It's a pretty big area just a mile or so north of where the creek dumps into the Trinity.

If y'all remember a couple years ago when there was a flood in Tarrant County and the creek was coming up over 820, that was the same creek.

NRH woman found in creek last month died from drug overdose

FORT WORTH _ A North Richland Hills woman found dead in a Haltom City creek last month died from a mixture of drugs, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s website on Thursday.
Birdie Lunsford, 34, had hydrocodone, methamphetamine, diazepam and the muscle relaxant cyclobenzaprine in her system when she died, the medical examiner's office ruled. Her death was an accident.
Her body was found about 1 p.m. June 12 in the creek near the Diamond Oaks Country Club, police reported.

Yep, sure most of us would be seeing snakes, and men hiding behind tree's, among other things, after taking all that.
