Mom, 35, and toddler twins were living in car before they were found dead in vehicle as dad reveals 'factor in death'

A MOM and her toddler twins were living in their car before they were found dead in the vehicle this week, her family has revealed.

The dad of Andrea Langhorst, 35, said that he believes that drugs may have been a factor in her death as cops search for a cause.

On March 20, police crews in Melbourne, Florida were called to investigate reports of a suspicious vehicle.

Upon opening the vehicle, investigators found the decomposing bodies of Andrea Langhorst and her two 3-year-old children.

Authorities released that Langhorst and her kids lived out of their vehicle from time to time, and were currently living in the Cadillac.

Langhorst's father also revealed that she had been living in AirBnbs to stay off the radar while the three-year-olds' father is in prison, according to an interview with Florida Today.

An autopsy is set to determine a cause of death, as investigators are looking into whether or not foul play was involved.

They are also using the autopsy to determine the time of death, as it is unclear if Langhorst or her children died first.

Detectives are also obtaining a blood toxicology report to detect any substances.

Melbourne police said that it was unclear how long the bodies had been decomposing in the vehicle.

Langhorst's father, Randy Langhorst, told Florida Today that his family is 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."

Langhorst's father also mentioned that he believes drugs could have been a factor in his daughter's death.

Andrea had been arrested on drug charges in the past and had spent time in drug court. She spent 25 days in jail in 2010 for oxycodone possession.

Langhorst's father also told Florida Today that his daughter had been in good spirits lately, and he didn't have reason to be concerned for her welfare or the welfare of his grandkids.

The twin's father is currently incarcerated in Florida, awaiting trial on charges unrelated to Andrea and her children.

"The twins were her pride and joy. All I can think is that maybe…maybe the car was running and she fell asleep, maybe the fumes overwhelmed them. I don't know," Langhorst's father said. 

It is unclear when the results of the autopsy and toxicology reports will be released to the public.

Anyone with information about the victims was encouraged to contact the Melbourne Police Department at 321-608-6371.
