Woman found dead near Connorville

Connerville —  

Johnston County sheriff’s officials are investigating the death of a woman found dead in a car over the weekend.

KXII News reported sheriff’s officials said a 39-year-old woman was found dead in a car Saturday around 8 p.m. just south of Connerville. 

Few details are being released at this time, but sheriff’s officials said they are waiting on the medical examiner’s report before moving on with their investigation.

This is the second death under investigation in Johnston County from over the weekend. 

Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation is investigating the death of an 18-month-old boy found unresponsive Saturday night in his family’s home.

Investigators believe incidents leading to the boy’s death could have happened at the boy’s home on Pine Creek Road in Ravia, but say they are waiting on the medical examiner’s report to determine a manner and cause of death.

OSBI Spokesperson Jessica Brown said the case is being called suspicious because there aren’t any outward injuries on the boy’s body that would explain why he died.

“We don’t have knowledge of why he died at this point. That’s why it’s considered a suspicious death. Once the medical examiner does the autopsy, we’ll have much more information about whether or not this was accidental, natural, or a homicide,” Brown said Monday.

Brown says it could be weeks before the medical examiner’s office is done with its report and that no one has been arrested in connection with the case.
