Sheriff’s deputies declined to speculate on the cause of death of a 51-year-old Marshall County woman found dead Tuesday night.


 


Deputy David Barnes said toxicology tests are still pending as of Thursday in the death of Sheryl Walker, who was found dead in a neighbors’s pasture.


 


“We didn’t find anything that suggests a crime has been committed,” Barnes said. “We’ll wait until the medical examiner gives us a cause of death.”


 


The deputy said Walker simply wandered away from her home on Lynn Road and into a pasture, where she died.


 


He said there were no obvious signs of foul play or trauma.


Sheriff’s deputies declined to speculate on the cause of death of a 51-year-old Marshall County woman found dead Tuesday night.

 

Deputy David Barnes said toxicology tests are still pending as of Thursday in the death of Sheryl Walker, who was found dead in a neighbors’s pasture.

 

“We didn’t find anything that suggests a crime has been committed,” Barnes said. “We’ll wait until the medical examiner gives us a cause of death.”

 

The deputy said Walker simply wandered away from her home on Lynn Road and into a pasture, where she died.

 

He said there were no obvious signs of foul play or trauma.

 

Barnes’s death is one of three mysterious deaths in the region since Saturday. Medical examiner’s reports are still pending on two deaths in Johnston County.

 

A 21-month-old baby was brought to Johnston Memorial Hospital Saturday night by his mother and later pronounced dead. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is waiting on autopsy results, calling the death suspicious. No arrests have been made.

 

“We’re still waiting for the medical examiner’s ruling before we do anything with it,” said Captain Johnny Russell with the Johnston County Sheriff’s Department.

 

Johnston County Sheriff’s deputies are also still waiting on autopsy results for a 39-year-old Native American female found dead in her truck in the Blue River area near Connerville.
