CANNES, France (AP) — No place on Earth is more devoted to the "auteur" filmmaker than the Cannes Film Festival. Directors are hailed with minutes-long standing ovations, while movie stars parade a gauntlet of flashbulbs on the red carpet.

Police in Kansas City, Missouri, have determined that a 20-year-old college student who was found dead in a river in her submerged car in March accidentally died of hypothermia and drowning — but that alcohol and drugs played a role in her death.

Toni Anderson‘s body was found on March 10 after her vehicle was pulled from the Missouri River with her still inside. She had vanished on Jan. 15 after she left work at the Chrome club in Kansas City, just after 4 a.m.

She was on her way to meet up with a friend, but police say she never made it.

“The manner of death is accidental and the contributing factors are ethanol, cocaine and amphetamine intoxication,” Kansas City police said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE.

Authorities said that the investigation is now over.

In the weeks following the accident, officials worked to determine the mysterious circumstances surrounding  Anderson’s death. However, a police spokeswoman told PEOPLE in March that no foul play was suspected.

Before she disappeared on Jan. 15, Anderson was pulled over by an officer in North Kansas City, Missouri — a separate jurisdiction from Kansas City — around 4:30 a.m. after an illegal lane change. She was let go with a warning and soon stopped for gas, police said.

In footage of the stop uploaded to YouTube, an officer questions Anderson and tells her to briefly sit in a nearby parking lot to “gather” herself after she gave confusing answers.

At 4:42 a.m. that morning, Anderson texted a friend, “OMG just got pulled over again” — but police said she was likely referring to the stop minutes earlier.

Anderson’s mother, Liz Anderson, declined to comment to PEOPLE on Tuesday after her daughter’s cause of death was released.

But she previously said that police believed Toni’s car may have slid off a slick ramp into the river after her GPS system directed her the wrong way as she was turning around.

“If you look at the boat ramp she drove off of, it looks like a regular road — especially at night, when it’s dark,” Liz said. “The police believe the ramp was icy and that she may have tried to stop, but the car went into the water.”

Toni studied marketing at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and, in her spare time, reviewed music festivals, her family said.

Her mother has described her as “a beautiful, smart, intelligent, hard-working, kind and loving person.”

“I am relieved that it was nothing more than a tragic accident,” Liz said.

“It is horrible,” she said. “But they finally found her, and now we have a bit of closure.”

Pretty much everything is in changeover as Casual embarks upon its third season on Hulu, but one thing will remain consistent: plenty of nudity.

Indeed, the show’s cast has been baring soul and skin for two seasons now, and star Tommy Dewey teases there’s plenty more where that came from, including a cheeky performance by a former Gossip Girl heartthrob.

“Anyone who comes on the show, you’re going to show your ass,” Dewey teases upcoming guest star Chace Crawford. “I demand it.”

“Obviously he terribly handsome,” Dewey tells PEOPLE of the 31-year-old. “I think I can spoil this: He has a man bun. He’s a man bun dude. And his butt appears in the show this year, so I did a lot of squats this season just to keep pace.”

Dewey, 38, reveals Crawford will play a love interest for his on-screen sister Michaela Watkins, which means the former Saturday Night Live star also had “goes on a hell of a run this year.”

He continues, “Michaela and I have a running joke about who has more closed set days in a given season. I think she won this year. First season, I carried the burden. At this point it’s old hat. I’ll drop trou for anything.”

FROM COINAGE: The True Cost of Famous TV Apartments

 

While Dewey’s character Alex had welcomed Watkins’ Valerie and his niece Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) into his home during the first two seasons, the start of season 3 the semi-functional family unit split apart after Alex and Valerie’s father’s death.

“Since Michaela and Tara’s characters have moved out, this season’s a lot about, ‘Can these three find other humans to attach themselves to?’ ” says Dewey. Alex, he notes, is broke, lonely and “a mess for the first piece of the season.”

That said, the cynical former dating app creator’s love life does pick up when he meets a new woman named Judy, played by Arrested Deveopment standout Judy Greer.

Dewey co-wrote an episode with Watkins later in the season that “kicks off that storyline. She’s got a kid and Alex, in all of his desperate searching, is trying to link up and become part of that family. As you might imagine, Alex’s attempt to become a kind of a father doesn’t go terribly well.”

And so it’s inevitable that Alex, Valerie and Laura will inevitably reunite over the course of the season, Dewey assures.

“With those three characters, it’s a matter of them seeing if they can exist outside of that family unit,” he says, “but there’s of course a magnetism that pulls them back together.”

Casual season 3 is currently streaming on Hulu.

Did President Donald Trump get friend-zoned by his own wife … again?

Just one day after First Lady Melania Trump made headlines around the world with a video that appeared to show her swatting away her husband’s attempt to hold hands, she seemingly gave an encore performance.

As the pair exited Air Force One in Rome Tuesday before a visit to the Vatican, the first lady can be seen pointedly using her left hand to fix her hair as the president makes an attempt to grab it.

The subtle move happened just one day after she was also seen subtly rebuffing her husband’s attempt at hand-holding as the pair walked away from the presidential plane on the Israeli tarmac.

Despite being seemingly rejected for the second day in a row, it appears the duo did briefly hold hands earlier Tuesday on the tarmac in Israel before jetting off to Rome.

The state of the couple’s union has been the subject of scrutiny in recent weeks after the first lady’s verified personal Twitter account liked a tweet about her dramatic change in facial expressions at the inauguration when she smiled, then scowled, after the president glanced in her direction.

The tweet was un-liked after Twitter caught on, and Melania’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham, later told PEOPLE “The First Lady wasn’t aware of any of this until I brought it to her attention. It isn’t her primary account and we have since changed the passwords.”

The couple, who live apart while son Barron finished school in New York, are in the midst of their first overseas trip since the real estate mogul entered the White House — an eight-day tour of five countries. Ivanka Trump and her husband, senior presidential advisor Jared Kushner, are also joining the first couple on the trip.

Just ahead of the overseas tour, the first lady announced her plans to join.

“I am very excited for the upcoming trip,” the first lady said in a statement. “This will not just be an opportunity to support my husband as he works on important matters of national security and foreign relations, it will also be my honor to visit and speak with women and children from different countries, with different perspectives.”
