The granddaughter of former Kentucky first lady Judi Patton likely died from meningitis, according to authorities.
Fifteen-year-old Judith Paige Johnson died on Sunday morning at the home of Mary Francis Stamper in Pikeville.
Former Kentucky Governor Paul Patton says medical officials have told the family there is a 99 percent chance Johnson had contracted bacterial meningitis.
An autopsy of Johnson was performed today at the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort.
Symptoms of bacterial meningitis include high fever, headache, nausea, vomiting and a stiff neck.
Johnson spent Saturday night with the Pattons before returning home around 10 p.m., according to Paul Patton.
Patton added Johnson complained of not feeling well before leaving.
The funeral service for Johnson, who was a student at Pikeville High School, will be held on Wednesday at 1 p.m. at Pikesville Presbyterian Church.
